On December 28 at 7pm ET, C-SPAN Radio concludes a week-long special series of Supreme Court oral arguments by current Justices, before they joined the Court.
In this program: Assistant Attorney General Antonin Scalia’s argument for the United States supporting the petitioner in the 1976 sovereign immunity case “Alfred Dunhill of London, petitioner v. Cuba, respondent.” This was Mr. Scalia’s only argument before the Supreme Court before becoming an Associate Justice in 1986.
And then we conclude this series as we began it, with now-Chief Justice John Roberts. You’ll hear him argue his first case before the Supreme Court, as a friend of the Court for the respondent in the 1989 double jeopardy case “United States, petitioner v. Irwin Halper, respondent.”
