Does anyone know what the 1996 Judicial Council order was?

Yes it was attached to the First Circuit's order here

Professor Neeson should give himself an F for failing to uncover the 1 CIR order barring recording of procedings, and should give Judge Gertner and her clerks an F-. Very clever how she shifted the blame to counsel for not bringing the 1 CIR order to her attention. Why should she have been expected to know about a standing order of her reviewing court?

The "order" by the Judicial Council is entitled as a "Resolution".

Curious... Does a Resolution by the Judicial Council carry the same weight as an Order and is it binding on the circuit?
