The U.S. Supreme Court seeks to limit information about its internal deliberations, while the press's job is to report and disseminate as much information as possible about the Court and the cases. Combined with increasing demands for transparency in the digital age, the tension between an institution that seeks to preserve its opaqueness and a press corps that demands greater transparency results in an interesting dynamic. This CLE will explore the relationship between the Justices and the press, the media' approach to the Court's docket, and the effects of news coverage on public opinion.
