Phones in Court

The Office of Court Administration recently changed their policies, and now camera phones will be allowed into courtrooms in NY. The reasoning, to paraphrase the article, is that now most phones have cameras. As someone in the market to upgrade his phone, who has been trying to avoid a camera phone for court-related reasons, I can certainly see the logic behind the decision. On a practical level, I'm also heartened to see OCA responsive to the realities on the ground--it's a speedy response somewhat foreign to the executive bureaucracy.
