Short Update: US Senators urge Supreme Court to continue live-streaming even after COVID-19 pandemic is over

FT Admin - June 9, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Remote Justice, Court closures

Two cross-party former Senate Judiciary Committee chairmen are urging the Supreme Court to continue live-streaming its oral arguments after the COVID-19 pandemic is over. 

 The two cited public opinion polls that found majority approval of the court's broadcasting of audio from its oral arguments. 

The court has long resisted bipartisan calls to broadcast its oral arguments but began conducting remote arguments and making the live audio available as the court shuttered its normal operations in June.
