Justice Sotomayor is judging a moot court at U.C. Irvine Today

January 27th, 2014

Report from Rick Hasen:

Not even the SCOTUSBlog folks knew this. They had to Google it.

That’s why she was not present at Court today, and the Chief had to announce her opinion.

It frustrates me to no end that the Justices do not publish their speaking and touring schedules. I know the Supreme Court Press Corps  shares this frustration, when they find that a Justice gave a talk somewhere, and no one knew about it. And, because these events are open to the public, there may, or may not be media coverage, but the reporters aren’t often tuned into the things the members of the Supreme Court press corps are. Though we don’t know about it before, we always find out about it after.
