The staff at the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is providing a faster turnaround for posting audio recordings of oral arguments on the court’s website.
An April 8 rule change announced the court would post audio files of oral arguments on the court’s Internet site without charge by the next business day. The previous standard was two days after argument.
The change was made to the court’s Internal Operating Procedure 34.3.
The court began posting links to oral argument audio files in May 2011. Recordings of oral arguments are available here.
Oral argument recordings from 2002 to 2011 are available with the purchase of audio CDs.
