I get that, but I still believe it's up to her as to what's "worse" or what measures could make a sure-to-be-terrible day in court slightly more bearable.

Just because a courtroom is closed doesn't automatically mean that it's totally hushhush and nothing can be reported on either. Reporters can interview those in court afterwards and the decisions are public. There's still plenty to report on without forcing her to be more uncomfortable than neccessary.
