Legal Research: 11th Circuit Will Begin Posting Oral Argument Recordings Online in April 2017

From Law360 (Subscribers Only):

The Eleventh Circuit on Monday revealed a plan to post audio recordings of oral arguments on its website beginning in April 2017, joining almost all of its fellow federal appeals courts in making oral arguments readily available online.

The appeals court issued a list of proposed revisions to the court rules that include posting of oral argument recordings on the Eleventh Circuit’s website “as soon as practicable after the date of argument.”

From the Eleventh Circuit Proposed Rules Document Mentioned Above (Page 12):

Recordings of oral arguments held after April 1, 2017 are available on this court’s website. Recordings are posted as soon as practicable after the date of argument. The court makes no representations about the quality of the posted recordings. Recordings of sealed oral arguments will not be released absent an order of the court. Any motion to seal argument must be filed at least five days before oral argument, unless the court extends that period upon a showing of good cause.
