Pictures of journalists running out of court as if they were in a marathon, after attending Paul Manafort’s trial, spread on social media on Wednesday.

The journalists are usually interns of major news news channels who are tasked with delivering court decisions to their outlet's correspondents stationed outside of the courts. It is become known as the "Running of the Interns" or sometimes called a race.

The reasons why they run is that recording devices have been banned inside the courtroom is because since 1946, recording devices have been banned inside the courtroom of the United States Supreme Court Building.
