Judge to determine if media can photograph, shoot video of Noor trial evidence

The evidence presented throughout the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor will be made available to the media, but prosecutors are arguing the items should not be photographed or videotaped.

At the end of April, a jury found Noor guilty of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for fatally shooting Justine Ruszczyk Damond in July of 2017.

Under court exhibit policy, exhibits are made available following a completed trial, but a judicial order must be provided for request to shoot video, take photos or make copies of the items.

According to a judicial order filed Monday, the prosecution objected to third-party copying access due to concerns for potential appeals or post trial motions. Members of the media or public have until May 16 to respond to the State's objection to copying the exhibits.

Following that deadline, the court will issue an order determining copy access.
