For the seventh and final time this term, the Supreme Court turned down a media request for same-day access to the audio of its oral arguments. C-SPAN and other networks had requested the audio for today's argument in Christian Legal Society v. Martinez, an important church-state dispute. With the Court's argument season ending April 28, that means the term will end with none of the arguments being given same-day treatment -- the first term since 2004-2005 in which no arguments were approved for immediate release.
