Western District of Pennsylvania Media Page

The Clerk’s Office of the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, has prepared this informational guide to foster cooperation between the Court and the media for coverage of trials and hearings in the district.

The Cases of Interest page provides information on cases that have received significant public and media attention and includes critical case documents.

The judge presiding over the case is fully responsible for the trial in his/her courtroom, and expects the media to comply with terms that he/she may specify. Accordingly, specific information and/or procedures concerning a trial or hearing may be issued or implemented by the judge presiding over the particular matter. In some trials, media must register to obtain court-issued credentials.

No one should telephone a judge’s chambers or courtroom deputy clerk. All questions that cannot be answered by the links on this page or that cannot be answered with publicly available information may be directed to
