Court Says OC Register Can Report on Its Own Trial

ocrlogo250333.gifLAT isn’t the only SoCal paper getting sued by its employees. Newspaper carriers are suing the OC Register. A judge had ruled against the paper covering the trial, fearing bias and an ability to poison the jury pool.

An appellate court yesterday ruled differently:

The five-page unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel said Orange County Superior Court Judge David C. Velasquez’s order barring only the Register from reporting testimony during the trial violates both state and federal constitutions.

Yeah, journalists from a paper reporting on a suit against said paper is…wait for it…a little like naval gazing.

Get it?
