If a tree falls in the Supreme Court, someone will hear it... later


The U.S. Supreme Court has decided it will release the audio of every single oral argument -- but with a delay. The audio will be released each Friday on the court's Web site during weeks when argument is conducted.

However, this means the court will no longer release any of the audio to news organizations on the same day oral argument is heard. It is, apparently, some kind of a compromise. This way, the court can say it's releasing the audio. But it won't come out in time to be used in any same-day broadcasts.
