Honorable Mary Manzi,
This is a request to film you in your court room for Monday April 19, 2010 from 9AM til 1PM
We seek to record all hearings in front of you which involves contempt hearings. We are asking to record only you, and not any party to any case.
As required under SJC rule 1:19, Notice is given to you in a timely manner, this request has been faxed to your clerk, as I have been unable to find any laws that require media not to fax in any request. We are still waiting to hear back from Chief Justice Mulligan's office in regards to your last denial for us to record based on your statements that I was told on the record, that I couldn't fax in any request.
My understanding of your order from January 7, 2010 is Null and Void as you never issued a written order, Nor have you released any dockets
There is tremendous public interest in the happenings not only of the Probate Courts of the Commonwealth but also the Judges who hears these proceeding. We seek your approval to allow a camera in your court room which again will Only be facing the Judicial Bench, and at NO time will the camera be directed at any Litigant, witness, or bystanders with the exception of any court employee's and only if the employee's conduct would be of public concern.
Again Behind the Scene would like to thank you in advance for allowing such request, We ask that if a hearing is required, that your clerk contact us with a hearing date on our request.
If you would like more information in regards to my status as a Produce and Director of Behind the scene with Hector Montalvo or any other shows I direct, feel free to contact SJC Joan Kenny, who has all the information provided to her by MCTV.
