This week the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit will begin posting audio recordings of oral arguments on its website shortly after the oral arguments conclude.  In his column for the Los Angeles Times, Michael McGough urges the Court to follow the D.C. Circuit’s lead, suggesting that “the availability of audio on the day of argument might lead to a modest increase in broadcast coverage of borderline cases.  That would be a good thing for the court and the country.”

At USA Today, Richard Wolf looks at next month’s oral arguments in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, in which the Court will consider the constitutionality of aggregate limits on campaign contributions, and in particular at how Chief Justice John Roberts might vote in the case.

In a post at ThinkProgress, Ian Millhiser discusses a new study by Yale Law School’s Dan Kahan and what it might mean for how the Justices approach legal analysis.
