Despite the warm weather here in South Florida, the holiday season is in full swing. If you are a criminal defense lawyer or Supreme Court buff looking for something interesting to read or listen to during your holiday downtime, I have just the thing: recordings and transcripts from oral arguments held in the United States Supreme Court since the term began in October, 2011. It may sound like a dorky way to spend the holidays, but sometimes those oral arguments can be pretty entertaining! Just think of those comments you’ll be missing from Justice Scalia! Who knows–maybe Justice Thomas will surprise everyone and actually ask a question! To find a complete list of the oral argument sessions and cases, click here. Once you are on the Supreme Court page, simply click on a hyperlink for your desired case, and you’ll be brought to a page containing further links for transcripts in pdf format, mp3s, windows media, and real audio.

Happy holiday reading/listening!
