Question about request: Audio and/or video of shooting of Siale Angilau in U.S. District Court
1 answer from Michael Morisy.
The subject in question is dead. It happened in a public courtroom inside the new U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City.
So for an administrative appeal, I would focus on a couple of arguments:
That a blanket denial is probably excessive, and that the material should actually be reviewed since this (presumably?) occurred as part of an open court hearing.
That this material was generated in a public setting, and that there are already numerous witnesses, so it is not disclosing previously secret law enforcement techniques.
I think an administrative appeal has a good shot.
