Cameras In the Supreme Court

Senator Arlen Spector (D-Pennslyvania) makes a speech on proposed legislation that would install cameras in the proceedings of the Supreme Court of the United States:

While I do support the measure, I have no doubt that the Supreme Court will declare constitutional superiority and refuse to have cameras installed.

It is a well-known fact that district and superior court judges have all protested any cameras in their courtrooms, and I have no reason to believe that such will not be the argument before the Supreme Court.

It is interesting, however, to see how the debate will be framed and how the judicial branch will respond to the legislative branch’s attempts to make the court proceedings more transparent.
