BREAKING: MSNBC Banned From Kenosha Courthouse After Being Accused of Following Jury Bus

Judge Bruce Schroeder, who is presiding over the Kyle Rittenhouse case, has barred MSNBC employees from entering the Kenosha courthouse for the duration of the trial. In a statement to the court, he addressed an incident in which an MSNBC employee reportedly followed the jury bus as it left the courtroom to transfer jurors to a secret location.

Judge Schroeder stated:

“I have instructed that no one from MSNBC news will be permitted in this building for the duration of this trial. This is a very serious matter and I don’t know what the ultimate truth of it is, but absolutely it would go without much thinking that someone who is following the jury bus—that is an extremely serious matter and will be referred to the proper authorities for further action.”

The judge explained, James J. Morrison was seen following the bus and told detectives he was directed to do so by an MSNBC producer in New York.

A representative for NBC told Fox, “Last night, a freelancer received a traffic citation. While the traffic violation took place near the jury van, the freelancer never contacted or intended to contact the jurors during deliberations and never photographed or intended to photograph them. We regret the incident and will fully cooperate with the authorities on any investigation.”

The Kenosha Police Department claimed Morrison was attempting to photograph jurors but that “there was no breach of security regarding the jury, nor were there any photographs obtained. This investigation remains active and open, no further information.”
