Supreme Court to provide same-day audio for travel ban case

April 13, 2018 - 10:24 AM

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court will release an audio recording of arguments over President Donald Trump's travel ban just a few hours after they conclude on April 25.

Friday's announcement from the court is the first time it has agreed this term to provide audio on the day a high-profile case is argued.

The justices have never allowed cameras inside the courtroom but occasionally provide same-day audio for cases with unusually high public interest. The first time was for the Bush v. Gore arguments over the disputed outcome in Florida's presidential vote in 2000.

A link to audio typically is posted on the Friday after arguments. Argument transcripts are routinely available a few hours after the justices hear a case.

Reporters are not allowed to carry recorders or cameras into the courtroom.
