Justice Alito will give a speech Thursday at Notre Dame on the shadow docket. At his request, the speech will not be publicly livestreamed or recorded.
Justices Barrett & Thomas also gave recent speeches with no livestream (though video of Thomas' was released after the fact).
When Alito gives a speech Thursday at Notre Dame on the Supreme Court's shadow docket, there will be no livestream or recording. I've confirmed with Notre Dame officials that it was Alito who requested those restrictions.

Just in: New COVID procedures (including PCR tests) for lawyers in advance of the Supreme Court's return to in-person arguments next week.
With less than a week to go b/4 #SCOTUS returns to the courtroom, the Court has posted COVID-19 protocols for lawyers arguing this fall, including a new pre-argument tradition: COVID testing. Full document is here: https://www.supremecourt.gov/announcements/Fall_2021_argument_COVID_protocols.pdf
New at SCOTUS: Rick Allen Rhoades, who is set to be executed tomorrow evening in Texas, asks the justices for an emergency stay. Rhoades argues that he has been denied access to trial records that would help him investigate whether the jury selection was tainted by racial bias.
One week from today, the court will begin its new term and the justices will return to the courtroom for the first time since the pandemic hit. Time to dust off those robes and get ready for the first day. Here's our new banner, "back to school" edition, from @Courtartist.
The justices are meeting privately today for their "long conference." Thousands of cert petitions have rolled in over the summer, and the justices use today's conference to discuss which ones they should take up. Here are all the petitions we're watching:
