Lord
 
Chief 
 
Justice
 
extends
 
Live
 
Text
Based
 
Communication
 
from
 
Court
 
The
 
Lord
 
Chief 
 
Justice,
 
Lord
 
Judge,
 
today
 
handed
 
down
 
guidance
 
on
 
using
 
laptops
 
and
 
hand
held
 
devices
 
to
 
communicate
 
directly
 
from
 
courts
 
in
 
England
 
and
 
Wales.
 
“A
 
fundamental
 
aspect
 
of 
 
the
 
proper
 
administration
 
of 
 
 justice
 
is
 
open
 
 justice.
 
Fair,
 
accurate
 
and,
 
where
 
possible,
 
immediate
 
reporting
 
of 
 
court
 
proceedings
 
forms
 
part
 
of 
 
that
 
principle,”
 
the
 
Lord
 
Chief 
 
Justice
 
says.
 
Interim
 
guidance
 
on
 
live,
 
text
based
 
communications
 
from
 
courts
 
in
 
England
 
and
 
Wales
 
was
 
first
 
issued
 
on
 
20
 
December
 
2010,
 
following
 
which
 
the
 
Lord
 
Chief 
 
Justice
 
consulted
 
widely
 
including
 
the
 
media,
 
the
 
Secretary
 
of 
 
State
 
for
 
Justice,
 
the
 
Attorney
 
General
 
and
 
members
 
of 
 
the
 
public.
 
After
 
considering
 
the
 
responses
 
he
 
has
 
published
 
new
 
guidance.
 
Under
 
the
 
interim
 
guidance
 
 journalists
 
had
 
to
 
make
 
an
 
application
 
to
 
the
 
 judge
 
to
 
request
 
permission
 
to
 
use
 
electronic
 
devices
 
to
 
send
 
text.
 
The
 
new
 
guidance
 
makes
 
clear
 
that
 
there
 
is
 
no
 
longer
 
any
 
need
 
for
 
representatives
 
of 
 
the
 
media/legal
 
commentators
 
to
 
make
 
an
 
application
 
to
 
use
 
text
based
 
devices
 
to
 
communicate
 
from
 
court.
 
Members
 
of 
 
the
 
public
 
should
 
make
 
a
 
formal
 
or
 
informal
 
application
 
if 
 
they
 
wish
 
to
 
use
 
these
 
devices.
 
Use
 
of 
 
devices
 
should
 
not
 
cause
 
a
 
disturbance
 
or
 
distraction.
 
The
 
 judge
 
always
 
retains
 
full
 
discretion
 
to
 
prohibit
 
live,
 
text
 
based
 
communications
 
from
 
court,
 
in
 
the
 
interests
 
of 
 
 justice.
 
The
 
“paramount
 
question”
 
for
 
the
 
 judge
 
in
 
deciding
 
whether
 
to
 
allow
 
live
 
text
based
 
communications
 
is
 
whether
 
it
 
may
 
interfere
 
with
 
the
 
administration
 
of 
 
 justice.
 
“the
 
danger
 
….is
 
likely
 
to
 
be
 
at
 
its
 
most
 
acute
 
in
 
the
 
context
 
of 
 
criminal
 
trials,
 
eg
 
where
 
witnesses
 
who
 
are
 
out
 
of 
 
court
 
may
 
be
 
informed
 
of 
 
what
 
has
 
already
 
happened
 
in
 
court
 
and
 
so
 
coached
 
or
 
briefed
 
before
 
they
 
then
 
give
 
evidence”
