SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Three more Illinois counties have been added to the state's pilot program allowing cameras in courtrooms.

The Illinois Supreme Court announced the additions Thursday of Lake County in the 19th Circuit and DeKalb and Kendall counties in the 23rd Circuit. The order is effective immediately.

Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride started the pilot project a year ago. Since then 25 counties in nine judicial districts have participated. The program opens trial courtrooms to news photographers and electronic news media to cover cases.
