Supreme Court to Release Same-Day Recordings of Health Care Arguments

From the New York Times:

The Supreme Court announced on Friday that it would release same-day audio recordings of the arguments over the constitutionality of the health care overhaul law.  The arguments will be heard over three days starting on March 26.

The court’s recent practice has been to release audio recordings of arguments at the end of the week.  It plans to alter that practice for the health care case, a press release from the court said, “because of the extraordinary public interest” in the arguments.

The court said the recordings would be available on its Web site around 2:00 p.m. for arguments held in the morning on each of the three days, and around 4:00 p.m for an argument to be held in the afternoon on March 28.

The press release did not address television coverage but suggested by implication that the court would not allow it.
