Michigan Supreme Court will start streaming arguments online in real time Tuesday
Chief Justice Robert Young Jr. says public will be better informed with live sessions
Live and online from Lansing: the Michigan Supreme Court.
The state's highest court says arguments will be streamed online starting Tuesday with a case about a contract dispute between the Macomb County Road Commission and a union.
Chief Justice Robert Young Jr. says it's a "natural extension" of the court's "commitment to transparency." He says the public will be better informed when it can watch the court over a computer in real time.
For years, cases could be watched on Michigan Government Television, a cable channel, but MGTV stopped broadcasting in December.
