We Got Scooped: SCOTUS Edition

Email a Friend
The Supreme Court building in Washington DC

This week's show is all going to be all about the Supreme Court, and we were excited about a particular segment on transparency... until the Court made it totally obsolete on Monday. 

In the spirit of transparency we're putting the segment down our podcast feed and explaining the story behind the story. First, Adam Liptak of The New York Times tells us about the justice's practice of editing their opinions after they've been handed down, and not telling anybody about the changes. Then, David Zvenyach tells us about the Twitterbot @SCOTUS_servo, which he created to make those edits public. And then, OTM producer Alana Casanova-Burgess explains how the Supreme Court changed their policy this week and made our segment useless. Progress! 

Coming up on Friday's show: an hour on the Supreme Court. (Working Title: "Hot Bench")
