Fox oral argument in Supremes set for November 4

In planning your Election Day activities this Fall, you might want to pencil in a stop by the U.S. Supreme Court to catch the oral argument in the Fox v. FCC indecency case. (Read about the case in our earlier post.)  It’s currently scheduled for the first argument slot of the day on Tuesday, November 4. On argument days the Court convenes promptly at 10:00 a.m. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., but the line generally starts to form long before that – so vote super early and then drop on by the Court to stand in line, soak up some atmosphere, and hope to get a good seat.  Need directions?  Check out the Court’s website for maps, directions and other useful information.  But heads up — you are not permitted to carry ANYTHING into the courtroom, so leave those Blackberrys, cellphones, umbrellas, newspapers, lunch boxes, brief cases, etc., etc., etc. back at home.  (The Court does provide a coat-check service, if you don’t mind fighting through a rugby-like scrum to try to retrieve your belongings.)
