Ever since the pandemic started, the Supreme Court has been meeting remotely for health reasons.
That is about to change.
This week, the announcement was made that the Supreme Court will resume in-person arguments beginning in the fall term.

Even though the in-person sessions will resume, there will be restrictions.
The Washington Examiner reported, “The announcement said attendance for in-person oral arguments would be limited to the justices, essential court staff, counsel in each case, and journalists with full-time press credentials issued by the Supreme Court.
“The high court remains closed to the public.”
The report continued, “The announcement added the court anticipates it will continue to stream live audio feed of oral arguments for those unable to attend.”
The caution here with the justices is reasonable considering the majority of the Court is over the age of 65.
Now, however, all justices have been vaccinated as well as having resumed in-person press conferences some time ago.
At this point, it is time to get back to business as usual.
With so many important and controversial cases sitting on the docket, it will make for some great court TV in the fall.
