May I bring recording equipment into the courtroom to cover oral arguments?

Yes. With advance approval by the chief justice or chief judge recording equipment is permitted in designated areas of the courtroom for oral arguments. However, no more than five members of the news media using still cameras, television cameras, audio recorders, and electronic devices are permitted in the courtroom during a proceeding for recording, live streaming, or both. Pooling is required if there is additional news media.
