7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Screwed Up Recording

The clerk of the federal appeals court in Chicago said his office “screwed up” in not recording the audio of historic arguments over whether attorneys for a local terrorism suspect should be allowed to view confidential surveillance documents filed in the case.

Gino Agnello, the clerk for the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, said employees in charge of turning on the recording equipment were intimidated by the unprecedented security surrounding the case and mistakenly thought they weren’t supposed to record it. Before the arguments began, a U.S. Department of Justice team had swept the courtroom for bugs, and extra security measures remained in place for the hearing in the case of Adel Daoud, he said.
