Cameras Allowed in Kobe Trial

By  | 

A judge decides to allow cameras in the courtroom during parts of Kobe Bryant's sexual assault trial.

District Judge Terry Ruckriegle ruled Tuesday that still photography
will be allowed during opening statements and closing arguments.
Video and audio coverage will be allowed only during closing
arguments. No photography of jurors is allowed and cameras will not be allowed while witnesses are testifying.

Attorneys for the alleged victim, prosecutors and defense
attorneys opposed news organizations' attempts to photograph
the whole trial.

Bryant is accused of raping an employee of a Vail-area resort
last summer. He says the sex was consensual.

Bryant's trial is set to begin Friday in Eagle.
