Judge Nottingham also issued a Rule of Order for those attending the sentencing (a copy of which will shortly be posted on the DU Corporate Governance web site). His courtroom has a seating capacity of 210 which is likely to be inadequate for the number of people who will attend. As a result, Judge Nottingham will, as he did during the trial, provide a second, overflow courtroom that will provide a video feed of the proceedings. Only the media can use laptops in his courtroom but anyone can bring a laptop to the overflow courtroom for note-taking purposes.
The set up reflects the growing presence of bloggers. It allows persons who want to blog the sentencing hearing without having to get a press pass.
