Cameras in the Supreme Court
By Mike Rappaport

Ann Althouse writes:

I would very much like to see the oral arguments on television, but I don't think Congress ought to be imposing it on the Court. At least two of the justices -- Scalia and Souter -- have strongly opposed cameras in the Supreme Court. I should think there is a decent argument that this would be unconstitutional, violating separation of powers.
For the life of me, I can't imagine what she has in mind. Pretty soon we will be told that reducing their law clerks from four to three would be unconstitutional also!
