The media is buzzing over the release of Court Watch NOLA’s 2013 Report! The Report – Court Watch NOLA’s most detailed yet – celebrated the organization’s 15,000th volunteer courtroom observation, as well as the significant improvements our volunteers observed in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court in 2013.

Educating the public about the importance of making our criminal courts more efficient, transparent, and procedurally fair is critical to Court Watch NOLA’s mission, so CWN is gratified by the media attention our 2013 Report earned. The Times-Picayune, The New Orleans Advocate, FOX 8 WVUE, and the Mid-City Messenger all covered its release. You can also listen to Angela Hill’s coverage, or watch video footage of CWN’s Executive Director on “The Hot Seat” with Norman Robinson, as well as District Attorney Cannizzaro’s positive remarks about the Report to WWL (at the four minute mark of the linked video).
