Federal Appeals Courts Are Still Livestreaming Their Arguments

It’s another transparency win for Fix the Court and our allies advocating for a more open and modern federal judiciary.

More than three years after the pandemic compelled federal appeals courts to livestream their hearings, many for the first time, they’re all still doing it, according to new data compiled today.

There is one caveat: the Supreme Court, which does not have arguments scheduled until the fall, has not announced its broadcast plans. We’ll update you here as soon as we learn of them.

The chief judges of the circuits, the circuit executives and the circuit clerks should all be commended for maintaining this level of public access.
