How Appealing

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

Promise kept: Back on December 11, 2012, in previewing an oral argument that I would be delivering the next day, I wrote "Eventually, the video of the oral argument should be available online via the web site of the Pennsylvania Cable Network. I will link to the video when it becomes available."

Unfortunately, as time passed, the video did not become available online. In relatively short order, my client won the appeal (and I collected news coverage of the outcome here, here, and here). Once the decision issued, I stopped checking to see if the oral argument had become available online.

Now, however, I see that PCN at some point finally posted the video of the oral argument online. The oral argument video is the first case that appears in "part two" of the video proceedings available online via this link.
