The South Dakota Supreme Court will announce Monday whether it will allow expanded media coverage of trial courts.
The Supreme Court has allowed electronic recording equipment and cameras when it hears appeals, but those devices are not allowed in other court proceedings.
Chief Justice David Gilbertson appointed a committee of judges, lawyers and the media to study the issue.
It developed two proposals. One would allow cameras and recording equipment only if the judge and all parties agree. The other would presume they can be used unless the presiding judge thinks they would interfere with the fairness of the proceedings.
