With increasing frequency, witnesses who formerly could only appear in court via deposition transcripts and videotapes now testify live from remote locations via videoconferencing. For many people, the idea of filming testimony evokes concerns about attorneys manipulating a witness's appearance to affect the witness's credibility. For others, the thought of a witness appearing "live via satellite" poses a threat to the very sanctity of the courtroom. In this Comment, Michael Roth examines issues of law and policy raised by introducing videoconferencing technology to trial proceedings. Roth provides a background of the technology and an overview of its current uses in the judicial system. He then looks at the concept of demeanor testimony and examines how media theorists suggest both the technology itself and production techniques can affect perceptions of a witness's demeanor. Roth argues that in light of empirical studies refuting the efficacy of demeanor as an indicator of truthfulness and current trial practices that distort witnesses' credibility, remote witness testimony should not be separately regulated. He concludes that videoconferencing should either be considered an additional tool in the advocate's repertoire of trial tactics, or it should invite a reevaluation of the advocate's role in our adversarial system.
