Pool Advisory in
State of Connecticut
vs. Michael Skakel

The Judicial Branch will allow pool arrangements for photos/videotape at two locations outside of the Norwalk Superior Courthouse on Aug. 28, 2002, when sentencing is scheduled to occur in the case of State of Connecticut vs. Michael Skakel. The arrangement will remain in place for as long as the proceeding lasts.

Two photographers -- one print, one TV -- will be allowed to position them-selves in an area near the sally port behind the courthouse. The Chief Judicial Marshal will designate the setup spot. The Associated Press will provide the print pool photographer and WFSB Channel 3 will provide the TV camera operator.

In front of the courthouse, the AP will provide the pool photographer for the print media. WVIT Channel 30 will provide the TV camera operator.

Credentialed news media organizations are expected to abide by these rules and designations, and both pool positions will be forfeited if any violation or unresolvable dispute arises.

In accordance with the policy adopted for the trial, no news media representative will be allowed to conduct interviews beyond the designated media pen that was in place during the trial and jury selection.

For further information, please contact Rhonda Stearley-Hebert, Manager of Communications, at 860-757-2270.
