15-24-7. Objections. (a) All public appellate proceedings are presumed open for expanded media coverage under these rules. A party to a proceeding objecting to expanded media coverage under these rules shall file a written objection, stating the grounds therefor, at least ten days prior to commencement of the proceeding. Time for filing objections may be extended or reduced in the discretion of the court, which may also, in appropriate circumstances, extend the right of objection to persons other than the parties to the appeal.
(b) All objections shall be reviewed and determined by the court prior to commencement of the proceeding. Expanded media coverage of the proceedings shall not be limited by objection of parties or others except for good or legal cause shown that such coverage would materially interfere with rights of the parties and the interests of justice.
(c) Where expanded media coverage of a proceeding has been prohibited by decision of the court, the clerk shall notify the media coordinator who shall notify the appropriate media personnel prior to commencement of the proceeding.Source:
