SJC asked to limit broadcasts
WBUR defends right to show hearings
Two attorneys yesterday asked the Supreme Judicial Court to step in and impose restrictions on the WBUR-FM project that broadcasts some Quincy District Court hearings over the Internet. A prosecutor said that if the SJC allows opencourt.us to post a hearing involving alleged human trafficker Norman S. Barnes, they will be revictimizing his alleged victim, a teenaged girl. But WBUR argued that it has a First Amendment right to post to the Internet, the same as other media outlets.
