The Arizona Public Defender Association discussed, encouraged and joins the comment filed by the Pima County Public Defender's Office opposing this proposed rule change. The opposition to this proposed rule change is even more compelling in light of the Court's recent rule changes implementing new procedures for handling Proposition 100 issues at the Initial Appearance stage. As stated by the APDA at page 6, footnote 1, of its June 14, 2007 Comment opposing R07-0003: "As a corollary to this contemplated expanded role of initial appearance courts, R06-0016...should be rejected." The need for initial appearance courts to be expanded to full courts of record with counsel ordered to be present by the court is underscored by the Maricopa County Superior Court's recent implementation of the new rules. As will be discussed in greater detail in a comment to be filed by the APDA opposing these new rule changes,the Maricopa County Superior Court has interpreted Rule 7.4(b) to preclude defendants from having a subsequent review of nonbondable findings unless they can make a specific showing of new information that was not provided at the initial appearance. The court is denying many of these motions, even though there is no formal record memorializing what happened at the initial appearance. Clearly, the initial appearance is a critical event in the court process. If these new rules remain in place, the courts, prosecution and defense all have a heightened need for providing these initial appearance courts with more formalized proceedings that will enable the judicial officers at the initial appearance to make informed decisions about nonbondability issues and to allow subsequent courts to accurately review this initial determination when ruling on Rule 7.4(b) motions. A rule change that would allow video appearances by defendants at these critical proceedings will further erode the sparse review that is currently occurring at the initial appearances and should therefore be rejected.

The expansion of the use of videoconferencing technology with recording capability, while it has obvious benefits and cost savings related to transport and travel, should not be an automatic substitute for record making by a certified court reporter when required by statute or requested by any party.

We share potential concerns by the defense bar and perhaps even the prosecution when the use of audiovisual devices is based solely on a financial and/or convenience basis, and may be unilaterally expanded to other hearings, and a defendant's or litigant's rights or requests are summarily dismissed or disregarded.

Respectfully submitted,
Arizona Court Reporters Association
