Sunshine State Bar Dimming Courtroom Cameras?

The Miami HeraldImage via WikipediaFlorida news media groups are lining up their opposition to a proposed Florida Bar rule that targets the use by certain journalists  of cell phones, recording devices and cameras at a judge's discretion, according to The Miami Herald and Associated Press.

The Florida Press Assn., Florida First Amendment Foundation and the Florida Assn. of Broadcasters objected to the Florida Bar, arguing the proposed rule, which imposes restrictions on non-"professional journalists," is too narrow because it does not include freelancers, citizen bloggers, online journalists or book authors.
