The April 2013 issue of Connected is available online.
The bulletin covers the impact of new social media such as Twitter and Facebook on court proceedings, the ethical implications of judges and court staff using new media, and court policy issues relating to these technologies. Most of the stories are about the United States.
In this issue:
- Oregon juror jailed for texting during trial
- AOCs [administrative offices of the courts] and high courts using social media: an update
- Courts on Yelp
- Michigan launches latest video in Court Stories series
The bulletin is published by the Virginia-based National Center for State Courts and the Conference of Court Public Information Officers. There is occasionally material about non-US matters.
The Canadian Centre for Court Technology last year published a very useful compilation of existing court policies on the issue from across Canada.
