The Supreme Court
A panel discussion was held on the current U.S. Supreme Court to coincide with the release of the book The Supreme Court: A C-SPAN Book, Featuring the Justices in Their Own Words (PublicAffairs, 2010). The program included video clips of interviews with the Supreme Court justices for the C-SPAN documentary that was the source of the book. Topics included the dynamics of the Court, the confirmation process, Court procedures, and cameras in the court room. After their discussion, the panelists responded to questions from members of the audience. At the beginning of the program, Mr. Van Ee spoke about the archival material about the Court held by the Library of Congress. Associate Justice Stephen Breyer made opening and closing remarks at the event in the Montpelier Room of the Library of Congress. close
