The federal judge overseeing the trial of six men accused of plotting to storm Fort Dix said he would try to post evidence online as it is presented at trial.
U.S. District Judge Robert B. Kugler spoke after the defendants’ arraignment. He said the case would be tried by year’s end and he expected it to last up to four weeks, Associated Press reports.
He noted that the court made evidence available to reporters by 10 a.m. the next day in the trial of Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui.
Kugler hoped to top that, he said, making the posting of audio and video evidence simultaneous with its admission.
Kugler also said the defendants would wear leg irons throughout the trial and the courthouse would require extra security checks.
