Rare Chance To Hear Same Day Broadcast Of Supreme Court Arguments

I'll be checking in tomorrow with How Appealing and the SCOTUSBlog for updates and commentary on the arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in the University of Michigan racial preference cases. (Some of my colleagues at the firm authored one of the many amicus briefs in support of the University of Michigan; more, and a link to the brief, in this previous post.) As the AP recently reported, "Typically, tapes of oral arguments are not released until the end of the court term. Then they go to the National Archives, which makes them available to the public." ("Supreme Court Vows Quick Release of U-M Admissions Tape," at IMDiversity.) As was true of the Bush v. Gore case argued in December 2000, tomorrow the Court will alter its usual practice and release the tape immediately. C-SPAN Radio plans to broadcast and webcast (in Real and Windows Media formats) the proceedings commencing at approximately 12:15 p.m. ET.
