Access to Exhibits
Access to case exhibits is governed by Minn. R. Pub. Access 8, subd. 5, which states that except where access is restricted by court order, “documents and physical objects admitted into evidence in a proceeding that is open to the public shall be available for public inspection under such conditions as the court administrator may deem appropriate to protect the security of the evidence.” Additionally, the rule provides that in general evidentiary exhibits from a hearing or trial shall not be remotely accessible.
In this case, pursuant to Rule 8, the court has ordered
that all publicly accessible documents related to this case,that are otherwise not remotely accessible, shall be posted on a public website. That order does not authorize remote access to any non-documentary exhibits (recordings). Regarding such exhibits, the court has ordered
that public, non-documentary exhibits “will be made available for review at the Hennepin County Government Center through the court’s media contact.”
