Broadcast Media Locked Out of Gorsuch's Investiture Ceremony
Fix the Court executive director Gabe Roth released this statement on today’s events at the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court should not be hiding Justice Gorsuch’s investiture ceremony from the public, as, at the very least, I’m confident his friends and former colleagues back in Colorado would have enjoyed watching, or at least hearing, the event.
As a general matter, the court should expand its livestreaming policy to include ceremonies honoring the living, not just the deceased.
As you may recall, the first instance of livestreaming audio from the courtroom occurred in Nov. 2016 for the Supreme Court Bar meeting honoring the late Justice Scalia.
