The ruling of the Supreme Court of Spain, April 16th , 2016 sorts out the appeal raised by the Association of Journalists of Catalonia against the rules of access of audiovisual media to the judicial buildings in Barcelona. Those rules forbid their free work in the corridors and transit zones of the building and force them to remain in the press room. The reasons wielded by the courts are essentially three:  the corridors and dependencies of the judicial building are not a source of general access information (STC 56/2004),   the rights of third parties can be violated and the normal performance of the different judicial activities that take place in the building is jeopardized. Confronted with these reasons, journalists appeal to the freedom of information and to the relevance of their work on account of its general interest. At the same time, they ask for the personal rights of celebrities not to be considered unlimited while emphasizing that judicial buildings are areas open to the general public.
