While Cameras Are Away The Mice Will Play

Given that Justices Thomas and Breyer chatted together on the far end of the bench during the oral argument I attended (colleagues have reported the same on other occasions), it is only appropriate that they brief the public on whether the Justices are open to cameras in the SCOTUS court room. I think the public would be very amused to watch their little side show. Wink, wink.

For more on this head over to the Wall Street Journal Online.

Just to be clear, this does not mean that I endorse cameras in the courtroom. In fact, I do not, and I think it would lead to the kind of grandstanding we see on the floor of Congress most days, for those of us nerdy enough to watch C-SPAN.
