Putting CTV Out of Business

Its stock declining.

No cameras in the courtroom.

Court TV bankrupt?

5/24/95

As the Simpson trial progressed, California judges increasingly denied  the media’s courtroom camera coverage requests. In addition, another state that had a blanket rule barring cameras from its courtrooms and the federal courts stopped pilot projects to permit camera coverage of certain kinds of cases in a limited number of courtrooms. The economic impart hit Court TV hard. While the cable network didn’t go out of business, it did have to changes its programming and eventually the founder and owner, Steven Brill sold the channel. It continues to operate, but under the name of truTV and its programming is far different than it was in its pioneering days of the early 1990s.
