The Indiana Court of Appeals has announced plans to webcast most oral arguments in the Court of Appeals courtroom in the Statehouse. The goal is to produce live webcasts of the arguments, but that may not happen until next month, said Sandhya Graves, public information officer for the Court of Appeals.
She said all arguments will be recorded and available on the court's Web site and the arguments will be archived for a period of time.
Arguments will be webcast unless a majority of the three-judge panel determines not to do so. Parties in the case will receive a notice of the webcasting at the time the argument is set.
In addition, arguments will be televised on-site on a monitor outside the courtroom unless a majority of judges on the panel determines against it.
The appellate court decided to put more arguments on the Web in order to show the public the types of issues the court faces.
