D.C. Circuit Will Post Audio to the Internet

Chief Judge Merrick B. Garland kindly responded today to my letter of yesterday.

The D.C. Circuit has voted unanimously to begin posting audio to its website. The court actually voted last week to make the change, so I can't take any credit. But I do get to announce it!

Here are some of the details:

     *The new policy goes into effect on September 9, the start of the D.C. Circuit's 2013-2014 Term.

     *Audio will be available by 3:00pm on the same day as the oral argument, on the D.C. Circuit website.

     *An archive going back to the 2007-2008 Term will also be available.

This is a great development for public access to one of the nation's most important courts.
