The Peninsula Press Club’s board of directors on Wednesday (Feb. 22) decided to revive a forum that allows journalists, judges, lawyers and law enforcement officials discuss problems they may have with one another. The forum, called the San Mateo County Bench-Bar-Media, has existed on and off since the 1970s. But local TV news directors asked Darryl Compton, executive director of the Press Club, if the forum could be reactivated so that they could discuss problems with photography of court hearings at the San Mateo County Hall of Justice in Redwood City. The Press Club’s board asked board member Aimee Lewis of Bay City News to speak with Superior Court Judge John Schwartz and set up a Bench-Bar-Media meeting. When a date and location is decided, it will be posted on the Press Club web site.
