The Supreme Court announced Tuesday that, starting next week, it will post the audio of all its oral arguments on the Friday after they occur. Since the Court only hears arguments on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, that means the release will be several days after the fact, making it of little use for contemporary reports by the news media.

Court public information officer Kathy Arberg said Tuesday morning that the Court’s goal was to “provide the audio directly to the public, free of cost, and it significantly accelerates the release.” She declined to say why the Court saw fit to delay release until Fridays, a move that virtually ensures the justices’ voices won’t turn up in news reports except in Sunday talk shows or later when the decision is released.
