Media, organizations call for open hearings

The public should be able to “observe all matters’’ considered by a U.S. District Court jury that will decide if confessed killer Joseph Duncan should face the federal death penalty, 16 media and open-government organizations argued in a legal brief filed in federal court today. Here’s a link to the brief, and here’s a link to reporter Bill Morlin’s story at spokesmanreview.com. The 16 organizations filing the brief were The Spokesman-Review, The Associated Press, The Idaho Statesman, the Idaho Press Club, Idaho Newspaper Foundation, Idahoans for Openness in Government, Idaho Allied Dailies, Idaho State Broadcasters Association, Boise State Radio, KHQ-TV, KREM-TV, KXLY-TV, KTVB-TV, KTRV-TV, KBCI-TV and KIVI-TV.
