Remote Public Access To Criminal Court Proceedings
The bill requires all courts in Colorado to provide remote access for the public to observe any criminal court proceeding conducted in open court, unless the court does not have the technology available to do so or the court has ordered that the public is excluded from the proceeding. The bill also requires the court to post links on its website for the remote observation. If a court does not have the technology to allow remote observation to the public but later obtains such technology, the bill requires the court to comply with the bill within 90 days after obtaining the necessary technology.
