Justice Souter on C-SPAN’s Fight to Put Camera’s in the Court- “A fight I hope C-SPAN Loses”

December 28th, 2010

Linda Greenhouse interviewed Justices Souter and O’Connor at the Kennedy Library on C-SPAN. At 3:39, Linda Greenhouse makes a comment about the movement to install cameras in the Supreme Court, remarking “C-SPAN has a dog in that fight.” To that, Justice Souter replies, “A fight I hope C-SPAN loses.” Awkward laughter follows. For some time Justice Souter has been a vigorous opponent to cameras in the Court. Looks like he’s still opposed to it.
