Lawyers for the government, environmental groups, and watch dog organizations argued a case involving the disclosure of documents and information relating to Vice President Cheney’s energy policy commission. At issue were the separation of powers outlined in the Constitution, the use of executive privilege, and rules of discovery of evidence in judicial proceedings.

The arguments were presented on audio tape with still images of the participants. Justice Thomas was present but did not ask questions. This was the fifth time audio of the oral arguments before the Supreme Court was released the same day of the arguments. close
