Defense attorneys in Cobb County, Georgia, are suing to get audio recordings of discussions that Superior Court Judge Reuben Green has held with prosecutors without defense attorneys present. The discussions were captured by courthouse security video, and in one video Green was caught indicating he planned to give one defendant 25 years in prison even before the trial started. The county attorney's office changed its policy on releasing security videos after that video and a few others were turned over to defense attorneys. The county will now only turn over the video, not the audio, unless the person receiving it signs a confidentiality agreement.
