Supreme Court will Make Tape of Oral Arguments For DC Gun Ban Case Immediately Available

From today's Washington Post:

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court said Tuesday it will quickly release audio tapes after the March 18 argument over gun rights.

The case from the District of Columbia could resolve whether the Constitution gives individuals the right to own guns and, if so, whether the government may still strictly regulate gun ownership, including a ban on handguns.

The immediate, same-day release of audio tapes following arguments in major cases started in the 2000 presidential election, when the justices decided appeals of the Florida recount controversy in favor of George W. Bush.

The court has twice this term provided same-day audio. It was made available in cases involving the rights of prisoners detained by the U.S. military at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and the method of execution by lethal injection. . . .
