Media Advisory

Re: State v. Michael S.

The parties in State v. Michael S. will appear before the Superior Court for the Judicial District of Stamford/Norwalk at Stamford, Criminal Division, on Thursday, March 1, 2001 at 10 a.m., concerning the State's motion for change of venue and any further proceedings according to law. The motion will be heard at GA 1 Courthouse, 115 Hoyt Street in Stamford.

The hearing will be held promptly at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 1, 2001. News professionals are asked to report to the Courthouse no later than 8:45 a.m. Reporters must take their seats in the courtroom no later than 9:50 a.m.

Following the proceedings, the media will be asked to clear the courtroom and wait outside for any statements that might be made. Interviews will not be permitted in the courtroom. A podium will be outside the Courthouse for any such statements.

Satellite trucks will not be allowed to park on Hoyt Street overnight. Stamford Police will clear the street and allow parking by 8 a.m. Thursday, March 1st. Trucks may park in the Stamford High School parking lot Wednesday night. (Directions to the Stamford High School parking lot are at the end of this advisory).

Media wishing to shoot outside the courthouse prior to 8 a.m. or to set up their tripods may do so. It should be noted, however, that television cameras must be portable. No trucks will be allowed to park on Hoyt Street prior to 8 a.m., even for brief shots.

The courtroom is on the first floor of the building. There is no onsite parking. Directions to the courthouse are available at our website http://www.jud.ct.gov.

MetroNorth has frequent trains from Grand Central Station to Stamford and there are cabs and a city shuttle bus available at the station.

The Connecticut Practice Book (Sections 1-10, 1-11) does not allow the broadcasting, televising, recording or photographing of court proceedings by news media for proceedings that take place before the jury has been sworn in and, in non-jury cases, before the swearing in of the first witness.

The use of laptop computers is permitted as long as use does not disturb the court proceedings. Cell phones and pagers must be muted in the courtroom and any calls must be made or received outside of the courtroom.

In case of inclement weather or any changes in the scheduling of this matter, notices will be posted on the website and faxed to the media. Please check our website at http://www.jud.ct.gov for updates.

No cameras, recording devices, food or drinks are permitted in the building. The marshals will not permit entry to anyone having any of these items with them.
