Hearing on cameras in the courts

SCOTUSBlog is live-blogging the Senate hearings. Witnesses include former Senator Arlen Specter, Tom Goldstein (of SCOTUSBlog and a little bit of Supreme Court litigating), Chief Judge Anthony Sirica of the Third Circuit, Chief Justice Mark Cady of the Iowa Supreme Court, and Maureen Mahoney of Latham & Watkins.

The hearing follows yesterday's introduction of the Cameras in the Courtroom Act, co-sponsored by Republican Charles Grassley and Democrat Richard Durbin (still looking for a copy of the bill. It would require television coverage of all open sessions of the Supreme Court, unless a majority of the justices decide doing so would violate the Due Process rights of one of the parties.

More later, I hope.
