May I interview the attorneys after the oral argument?

Yes, but it is important to plan ahead and contact the parties or attorneys prior to the oral arguments for permission and to schedule interviews for two reasons.

  1. Judicial Branch Building policies prohibit interviews inside the building and limits all interviews and news conferences the designated news media area located on to the lower terrace on the north end of the building plaza and the public sidewalk adjacent to Court Avenue.
  2. If the case you are covering is the first of several arguments in a single court session, you must keep equipment in place until the court is adjourned to avoid disrupting the proceedings.
