Schiavo v Bush
The following is information about web and television simulcast of oral arguments in Schiavo v Bush. The oral arguments are scheduled for tomorrow, August 31, 2004 at 9.00 am ET (GMT -5). This information was taken from the Supreme Court's Special Procedures Order available on their web site here: http://www.flcourts.org/pubinfo/summaries/briefs/04/04-925/index.html
Netcasts of Oral Arguments.
The Schiavo case will be broadcast in its entirety in RealPlayer and Windows Media formats on the broadcast website maintained by Florida State University through WFSU/The Florida Channel as part of its contract with the Court (http://wfsu.org/gavel2gavel). WFSU has arranged to expand its available bandwidth for this event in anticipation of demand. The media and the public are advised that Web broadcasts cannot be considered reliable and may fail if demand exceeds capacity. The most reliable means of watching the case live is on The Florida Channel, which is available via many cable companies in Florida.
C-SPAN-2 has indicated that it may broadcast the Schiavo case live, but has not confirmed at the present time (Note: C-SPAN-2 has now confirmed that they will air this simulcast).
