OpenCourt is a pilot project that broadcasts the proceedings of the Quincy District Court in Massachusetts via the internet. The project is run by WBUR, Boston’s NPR news station, in cooperation with the Quincy District Court and the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts. Video can be streamed live or accessed through the daily archive. The goals of the project are to increase public awareness of how the courts function and to serve as an example to courts around the country who may want to adopt this technology. The Quincy District Court, one of the busiest courtrooms in the state, handles both criminal and civil cases.
More information about OpenCourt can be found on the project’s FAQ page. To view the proceedings, go to the OpenCourt Live page or view the Livestream Schedule.
