Live Audio at SCOTUS? And All It Took Was a Global Pandemic
Following news that the Supreme Court has scheduled virtual arguments for May and will provide “a live audio feed […] to news media,” Fix the Court’s Gabe Roth released this statement:
“Supreme Court arguments going live next month? And all it took was a global pandemic.
“This change in policy shows that the court is not immune to public pressure and that they’ve likely paid attention as countless state and federal appeals courts have successfully conducted remote arguments amid the health crisis.
“The court will have no excuse come next term to maintain a live audio policy for every argument, and we’ll do our part to make sure that live video is not too far behind.”
