18 Ways Courts Should Use Technology to Serve Their Customer

Pack the Courtroom! Solutions for High-Profile Matters

11:00 AM 12:00 PM Miller

Is your Court prepared for a high-profile matter? Court proceedings can command heightened interest from the press and public, depending on the subject matter or the parties involved. This session will explore balancing the rights of a fair trial for the parties while upholding the rights of the press and general public.

The Southern District of New York is no stranger to high-profile trials. Many of these trials have unique challenges, including demands from the press regarding access to the courtroom, large attendance from members of the public, security and safety concerns, and the use of technology to enhance access.

We will explore the preparations that were made to handle such high-profile matters as USA v. Michael Cohen, the Puerto Rico bankruptcy matter, and the litigation of the New York City Housing Authority. With the explosion of real-time media coverage, high-profile court proceedings have become a reality TV event, often drawing large crowds and media coverage, and even rallies. As court administrators, it’s our job to ensure these proceedings are carried out impartially, while at the same time ensuring the media and public’s right to access. In order to do so court staff must plan for these matters, which have included the following at SDNY: USA v. Rahami, USA v. Ullah, and USA v. Saipov, all of which are terrorism related; USA v Skelos et al, and USA v Seabrook, both public corruption cases; and USA v. Cohen and DNC v. The Russian Federation et al, both high profile politically charged matters.

Plenary: The Power of One

12:30 PM 01:30 PM Grand Ballroom

In September 1959, I was the youngest of five African American students admitted to Little Rock Central High School as it reopened after being closed for the 1958-1959 school year. During my three years at LRCHS I was shunned. No one in my homeroom ever greeted me or positively acknowledged my presence. No more than three students in my classes ever talked with or acknowledged me.

Twenty years after graduating, one classmate who had never spoken to me made certain that I was included on the class of 1962 reunion mailing list. He had dinner with me and my parents when no other classmates wanted to join us. Yet, as the evening went on, a surprising number of classmates came over to talk with me for the first time.

I learned that one person can be a powerful agent for change. Leaders, managers, and citizens need intestinal fortitude if they are to bear witness to the power of one. It takes courage to stand alone and do the right thing.
