Televising the Supreme Court

Televising the Supreme Court

Earlier in the year, Senator Arlen Specter introduced S. 344, a bill to permit televising Supreme Court proceedings.

An identical bill is pending in the U.S. House of Representatives. The current issue of First Impressions, an online companion to the Michigan Law Review, includes a symposium addressing the issue. As reported in the symposium, if enacted, this legislation would require the Supreme Court televise its proceedings, unless the Justices decide by majority that televising would violate a party’s due process rights.
