Public Gets On-Line Access to 9th Circuit Beginning Monday

Posted By on Sun, Jan 5, 2014 at 3:00 PM

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which holds appellate jurisdiction for Idaho, as well as Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, is starting the new year by opening up its hearings to more of the public—by live-streaming its bigger hearings on the Internet. In particular, the 9th Circuit will broadcast live its so-called "en banc" hearings, which are cases that include the 9th Circuit's chief judge and 10 other judges. Most appeals court cases are heard by a panel of three jurists.

Recently, Idahoans have watched the 9th Circuit hand down judgments on the Gem State's roadless rules, convicted felons awaiting execution, parental rights, Boise's anti-camping ordinance and Proposition 8.

The 9th Circuit will also begin live-streaming its audio coverage of all regular hearings beginning Monday, Jan. 6.
