IN Supreme Court To Allow Cameras On National Adoption Day

In celebration of National Adoption Day, the Indiana Supreme Court will be allowing still photography, audio and video coverage of a select number of uncontested adoptions from Friday through Nov. 22.

Typically, photography and audio and visual recordings aren’t permitted inside Indiana courtrooms. For this limited time – and for the purpose of raising awareness of the value of adoption – families and media may record the adoption events inside the courtrooms with the parties’ consent and at the judge’s discretion.  Recording and photography cannot interrupt court proceedings.
