Televising the Supreme Court: The Full Symposium

Senator Arlen Specter introduced S. 344, A bill to permit the televising of Supreme Court proceedings, on January 28, 2007. If enacted, the legislation will require the Supreme Court to televise its proceedings unless a majority of the Justices decide, on a case-by-case basis, that televising would violate the parties’ due process rights. An identical bill is pending in the U.S. House of Representatives. A diverse panel of authors explores the implications of the prospective legislation and considers potential costs and benefits of televising the Court’s proceedings.
