WASHINGTON, March 16 (UPI) -- Audio and transcripts will be expedited for arguments on the healthcare reform law, but the U.S. Supreme Court said nothing about allowing cameras in its court.
"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 Web site," the court said in a release Friday.
However, the release didn't mention television cameras being allowed in the courtroom, which had been sought by several news outlets.
Justices will hear oral arguments in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act March 26-28.
The release said audio recordings and unofficial transcripts would be posted as soon as the digital files are available for uploading to the site, the court said. The audio recordings and transcripts of the March 26-28 morning sessions should be available no later than 2 p.m., and the recording and transcript of the March 28 afternoon session should be available no later than 4 p.m.
