Media desiring to film or photograph the argument should file an Application for Extended Coverage with the Chief Clerk’s Office. Only one media outlet need apply. The requirement that media pool coverage from one video camera or one still camera will be waived for this case.
Please note that photographing and filming the faces of the students will not be permitted. The Chief Justice and a few students will be available for on-camera interviews following the oral argument.
Oral argument will be followed by two separate question-and-answer sessions for the students; one with the attorneys and another with the five justices. The question-and-answer sessions will not be open to the media or the public, for the privacy of the students.
