How great would it be if all landmark cases were streamed online? Everyone, from lawyers, to high schools students in a civics class, could see how the court system works.
We aren't there yet, at least in most courts. The Supreme Court refuses to allow cameras in the courtroom, either for live streaming, television broadcasts, or for online archiving. Heck, they only release audio recordings once a week.
But the Ninth Circuit, as they have done in the past, is pushing ahead with technology, and will begin to live stream en banc rehearings as early as next week, reports Politico.
