Supreme Court Teleconference Makes History. Is Video Next?

By Annie Pancak | May 11, 2020

The U.S. Supreme Court livestreamed audio of its oral arguments for the first time ever last week, reigniting the debate over whether the justices should allow video in the courtroom. 

Law360's Supreme Court reporter Jimmy Hoover lays out what you need to know about this moment, and experts from both sides of the debate make their best arguments for and against streaming oral arguments live on video.

The experts include: Neal Katyal, a partner at Hogan Lovells and the former acting solicitor general, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., chairman of the House appropriations subcommittee charged with overseeing the federal judiciary's budget, Paul Hughes, co-chair of McDermott Will & Emery LLP's Supreme Court and appellate practice group, Melissa Murray, a law professor at New York University School of Law, Gabe Roth, executive director of Fix the Court, and Nancy Marder, a law professor at Chicago-Kent College of Law.
