America and the Courts included:

On Friday, March 3, 2006 the U.S. Supreme Court class photo was taken.

On Wednesday, February 1, 2006, in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral argument in Cincinnati Women’s Service v. Voinovich. This case centers on a 1998 law signed by former Ohio Governor George Voinovich that requires women to meet face-to-face with a doctor to discuss the procedure, risks and alternatives to abortion. The law also requires that women under 18 seeking an abortion must get consent from a parent unless she can prove in juvenile court that she is mature enough to make a decision on abortion. The ruling by a U.S. District Judge that the law is constitutional was appealed.

This program contains audio with still images of participants as they spoke. 

On Wednesday, March 1, 2006, attorneys spoke to reporters on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court following oral arguments in four Texas redistricting cases. The Court will decide if a 2003 district map redrawn by the Republican-led legislature is constitutional. close
