Recording and re-use of testimonies in Norwegian courts

A team from Kluge's litigation group has written a contribution to the international publication “In House Laywer”, which targets at the same target group as the Legal 500.

The topic is highly relevant: Digital video recordings of testimonies, in order to realize the main principle of the Dispute Act on such recordings from 2005 - a principle which only recently has been put into practice, in the first phase through a trial arrangement. The actual main rule is still the Dispute Act's exception that recordings may not be made because of lack of resources etc.

The trial arrangement began in Northern Norway and has now been extended to Jæren District Court. The current article provides the basis for a broader article, in Norwegian, on the same topic, currently being worked out by the above-mentioned group of lawyers.
