i was working in a courtroom in preston, mn, all day yesterday for a trial. it's a tiny little town, but they had the most technologically advanced courtroom that i have ever been in. not only did they use realtime, but they had all kinds of cameras and flatscreens and plasma televisions. the judge can take pictures from his bench of anything in the courtroom and put them up on the screens. it's really handy for document review. the attorneys don't have to approach the bench or the jurors' box when they have a document to show. they can just put it under the camera, and it will come up on screens all over the place. also, there was a very soft-spoken juror yesterday that i could hardly hear, and the judge would zoom in on him so that i could watch his lips really closely on my screen. unbeknownst to me, judge benson took these pictures of me working yesterday during one of the proceedings and then emailed them to me last night.
