Group makes statewide push for more transparency into Maryland courtrooms

February 23, 2023

The group Courtwatch PG was founded with the aim of providing more transparency to the one step of the criminal justice system that’s public in name, but less public in practice. For the most part, judicial proceedings are open to the public, but you have to be willing and available to travel to courthouses to see what happens. The pandemic changed that, with virtual hearings that let anyone with a Zoom or Webex account see what was going on. With the evolution of the pandemic, accessibility is changing again. For the second year in a row, Courtwatch PG is helping to lead a state effort to open it up again.
