SCOTUS Postpones April Oral Arguments
Following word that the Supreme Court has postponed its April arguments indefinitely, Fix the Court executive director Gabe Roth released this statement:
“This is getting ridiculous. If the Supreme Court can conduct its weekly conferences remotely, which it has been doing for weeks, it can conduct its remaining arguments remotely and allow the public to listen in.
“The country has adapted to working over Zoom, Skype and Google Hangouts, and dozens of state (see North Dakota judges, right) and federal courts are keeping the wheels of justice moving via teleconferencing in spite of the pandemic. The Supreme Court should be no different.
“At a time when the public is looking for leadership from its public servants, the Supreme Court is nowhere to be found.”
