Judge: No taping of SB1070 immigration law hearings allowed

• Capitol Media Services

A federal judge has rejected efforts to let TV stations videotape and air Thursday's two hearings challenging Arizona's new immigration law.

In an order Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton said she really has no authority to grant the request by the First Amendment Coalition of Arizona to let cameras and tape recorders into the courtroom. She cited rules which specifically prohibit those devices in federal court, even when not in session.

The judge added, both hearings will be transcribed "and a transcript can be ordered by any interested person.'' 

Mighty white of you.
