The Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court welcomes media coverage of court proceedings.


However, cameras are not allowed inside of the courthouse or in courtrooms without the permission of the court or judge. Please call Public Information Officer Camille Baca at 505-841-9897 for camera clearance 24 hours in advance, or as soon as practicable.  Courthouse security will not allow cameras or other audio or video recorders in the building without prior clearance.  The court follows the guidelines laid out in New Mexico Supreme Court Rule 23-107 regarding the recording of court proceedings. These guidelines are designed to ensure the dignity of the proceedings and to guarantee a fair and impartial hearing.
Interviews are not allowed inside of the courtrooms.  Reporters or camera crews conducting interviews in the hallways or other courthouse areas will be expected to do so courteously, not disturbing other courtroom operations, employees or visitors.  Photographers and videographers are expressly prohibited from taking pictures of jurors or prospective jurors.
For specific information about media access to the court, court records and hearings, or interviews with court employees, please contact Camille Baca at 505-841-9897.
