Do I need to request Expanded News Media Coverage (ENMC) before oral arguments in the supreme court or court of appeals?

Yes. Broadcasting, recording, photographing, texting, blogging, or tweeting real-time electronic coverage of judicial proceedings is prohibited without prior authorization from the chief justice of the supreme court or chief judge of the court of appeals. The deadline for filing the ENMC request is no later than the Friday immediately preceding the week in which the argument is to be held, so you should contact the Appellate Court News Media Coordinator early in the week preceding the arguments. To help plan ahead, a schedule of the cases to be argued before the supreme court is on the Iowa Judicial Branch website.
