Citing the historic nature of the case, the United States Supreme Court announced it would make audio of oral arguments in the cases challenging the constitutionality of President Obama's national health care law available on the same day they are argued.
"The Court will hear argument in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act cases on March 26, 27, and 28," the Court said in a statement. "Because of the extraordinary public interest in those cases, the Court will provide the audio recordings and transcripts of the oral arguments on an expedited basis through the Court's Website."
It said that the recording of the morning sessions should be available "no later than 2 p.m." and the the March 28th afternoon session would be available by 4 p.m.
C-SPAN, which had sought to televise the arguments, announced it would be broadcasting the audio as soon as the Court makes it available.
UPDATE: Via Politico's Dylan Byers, here's C-SPAN's response:
We appreciate that the Supreme Court has taken steps to expedite the release of audio recordings of the oral arguments in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act cases on March 26, 27, and 28. C-SPAN will provide same-day airing of these arguments on C-SPAN3, C-SPAN Radio and C-SPAN.org as soon as they are released. At the same time, we are disappointed that the Court has rejected C-SPAN’s request for TV camera coverage of the oral arguments in this landmark case. We continue to believe allowing video coverage of Supreme Court oral arguments is in the public’s best interest.
