Letter Urges U.S. Supreme Court To Make Live Audio Access Permanent
Participated in a letter (with the Project on Government Oversight and other amici) to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., urging him to make live audio access permanent at the Supreme Court. As the letter notes, providing live audio access to cases during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has convincingly demonstrated the public’s appetite for observing the operations of the Court. Oral arguments from the May 2020 session have been streamed more than 2 million times, and those from the October 2020 term are fast approaching 1 million streams. The letter further states that the temporary provision of audio access has shown that the Court can balance increased public access with the integrity of its proceedings.
