Judge Overseeing Kim Potter Trial Allows Live Broadcasting

9November 2021

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The judge overseeing the Kim Potter trial has ruled that news organizations will be allowed to live broadcast the proceedings.

In a Tuesday filing, Hennepin County Judge Regina Chu ordered that video and audio recording and live broadcasting will be allowed in the courtroom during the trial session. The only matters not subject to audio recording will be sidebar discussions, although they will be allowed to be captured on video.

This decision comes a week after news organizations, including WCCO-TV, asked the judge to reconsider her earlier ruling that barred recording and live streaming of the trial.

Potter, a former Brooklyn Center police officer, is facing manslaughter charges in the April 11 shooting death of Daunte Wright. Her trial is slated to start on Nov. 30.

WCCO will live stream the trial on CBSN Minnesota.
