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.
