I see that the new rules require that news media representatives participating in ENMC must wear ID in the courtroom. Will the court provide that?

The rules just say that all authorized news media representatives "must wear identification, which is clearly visible to the judicial officer and members of the jury and which states the person's name and media affiliation." Contact the regional ENMC coordinator to find out how this process is handled in the jurisdiction. Most members of the news media will wear the IDs provided by their news organizations. It is the member of the news media's responsibility to wear a badge that is clearly visible to the judge and jury that identifies the member of the news media as a person who has been authorized to use electronic devices in the courtroom.
