The courtroom has not been built yet, but the technology is ready. The two suspects awaiting trial in the Lockerbie case, accused of placing a bomb aboard a Pan Am airplane that exploded in 1988 over Lockerbie, Scotland, will be tried by three Scottish judges at Camp Zeist, a former U.S. air base in Holland. [See "Flight 103 highlights Scots' law," Page A1.] And you’ll be able to follow the trial on the Web.

Because of the international nature of the proceedings and the worldwide media interest, Scottish authorities decreed that LiveNote transcription software will be used by all parties, including the judges, to broadcast the trial transcripts over the Internet. The words will appear on computer screens seconds after they are spoken in the courtroom.
