Article in today's Washington Post -- High Court to Post Same-Day Transcripts, by Charles Lane:

oral arguments available free on its Web site, the quickest and most complete public
access to its proceedings the court has ever offered.

which the justices have steadfastly refused. But, in the quiet, tradition-bound world
of the Supreme Court, yesterday's decision was almost revolutionary, court analysts said.
