SCOTUS oral arguments will be available online every week

Supreme Court Press Release: "Beginning with October Term 2010, the audio recordings of all oral arguments heard by the Supreme Court of the United States will be available free to the public on the Court’s Web site,, at the end of each argument week. The audio recordings will be posted on Fridays after Conference."

From the Sunlight Foundation on why this is a big deal: Since 1955, the Supreme Court has released audio recordings of oral arguments to the National Archives at the end of each term. Those recordings are theoretically available to the public, although as a practical matter the best way to listen to Court proceedings is via the website The Oyez Project. This new policy will make the recordings available to the public much more quickly, but still delayed several days after arguments take place.
