Editor’s Note:           
Reserved seating will be made available for the media due to the limited seating capacity in the courtroom.  To be included on the list for a reserved seat, media representatives must register in advance by contacting the Maryland Judiciary’s Office of Communications and Public Affairs via email at communications@mdcourts.gov.  Emails requesting reserved seating must include: the first and last names of the media representative, the name of the media outlet, work and cell telephone numbers, and email address.  Media seats will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, one media representative per media outlet, until space is filled.  The Office will allocate seats in the order that requests are received and will communicate to the Sheriff’s Office the names of those media representatives who are assigned reserved seats.  Media representatives must arrive by 8 a.m. in order to be seated.

The staging area for media interviews will be located outside of the Clarence M. Mitchell, Jr. Courthouse, 100 N. Calvert Street, Baltimore, Maryland, 21202, at the northwest corner of the intersection of Fayette and Calvert Streets.

There will be no parking around either of the courthouses during the hearings.  Parking restrictions will be strictly enforced.  A separate staging area for media trucks will be located at City Hall Plaza.

All media representatives should read the Security/Media Protocol Order to learn about the processes and procedures in effect during the pre-trial motions hearings, as well as the Maryland Judiciary’s policy on Cell Phones, Other Electronic Devices, and Cameras in Court Facilities.
