I'm ready for my close-up now, Justice DeMille

Dahlia Lithwick opines that the generational shift to from Rehnquist CJ to Roberts CJ will bring the cameras into the US Supreme Court in a couple of years. I’d like to think that the same will occur in Australia soon, but I still recall the horror with which some of the High Court Justices regarded the decision of their federal court bretheren to broadcast their decisions on radio and television (I was a HCA associate at the time). It’s a pity, as a CSPAN-style continuous broadcast of High Court proceedings would do no harm – and might do some good – to the standing of the court.

    Yes. Justice must be seen to be done. I suspect, however, people had OJ Simpson tv coverage in mind, and rightly thought that was a bit undignified.
