The Cyberlaw Clinic served as co-counsel for OpenCourt, a Knight Foundation-funded project of WBUR in Boston which livestreams and archives audiovisual recordings from Quincy District Court. A prosecutor and criminal defendant filed separate cases seeking to limit OpenCourts ability to archive public court proceedings on its site. In Commonwealth v. Barnes, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled in OpenCourt’s favor, holding that the relief sought by petitioners constituted unlawful prior restraints that violated the First Amendment.
