MEDIA ADVISORY

Re: State v. Michael S.

The arraignment in this case remains scheduled for February 21, 2001 at 10 a.m. in Courtroom B at GA 1 Courthouse, 115 Hoyt Street in Stamford.

The arraignment will be held promptly at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, February 21, 2001. News professionals are asked to report to the courthouse no later than 8:45 a.m. Representatives of the press must take their seats in the courtroom no later than 9:50 a.m.

Following the arraignment, the media will be asked to clear the courtroom and wait outside for any statements that might be made. Interviews will not be permitted in the courtroom. A podium will be outside the courthouse for any such statements.

For the information of the electronic media, please be advised the courthouse does not have a public address system. Placement of a mult box at the podium would provide access to an audio feed. It is strongly suggested that the electronic media determine who among them has a mult box and arrange with the Marshal to set it up at the podium.

Satellite trucks will not be allowed to park on Hoyt Street overnight. Stamford Police will clear the street and allow parking by 8 a.m. Wednesday. Trucks may park in the Stamford High School parking lot Tuesday night. (Directions to the Stamford High School parking lot are at the end of this advisory).

The courtroom is on the first floor of the building. There is no onsite parking. Directions to the courthouse are available at our website www.jud.ct.gov. MetroNorth has frequent trains from Grand Central Station to Stamford and there are cabs and a city shuttle bus available at the station.

The Connecticut Practice Book (Sections 1-10, 1-11) does not allow the broadcasting, televising, recording or photographing of court proceedings by news media for proceedings that take place before the jury has been sworn in and, in non-jury cases, before the swearing in of the first witness.

The use of laptop computers is permitted as long as use does not disturb the court proceedings. Cell phones and pagers must be muted in the courtroom and any calls must be made or received outside of the courtroom.

In case of inclement weather or any changes in the scheduling of this matter, notices will be posted on the website and faxed to the media. Please check our website at http://www.jud.ct.gov for updates.

No cameras, recording devices, food or drinks are permitted in the building. The marshals will not permit entry to anyone having any of these items with them.

Please refer all inquiries to Ginny Apple, Manager of Communications, for the Connecticut Judicial Branch, 860-757-2270.
