The Supreme Court’s new video conferencing system will be getting a workout tomorrow. The court announced this morning: “Due to the bad weather conditions affecting California, the court has switched Tuesday’s oral argument session from in-person to remote.” (Link added.)

Update: Other recent argument calendars have moved to remote from in-person with only a day’s notice. The April 2023 arguments changed because of “technical issues in the court’s San Francisco courtroom arising out of a recent weather-related power outage.” The October calendar went remote due to “events in San Francisco’s Civic Center honoring the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein.” (See also: More remote oral arguments because of continuing tech issues [about the two May calendars]; some justices participated remotely in the January 2023 arguments — Chief Justice Guerrero was in Sacramento to swear in Governor Gavin Newsom and “there may have been storm-related travel issues for some other[ ] [justices].”)
