Supreme Court Will Hear Arguments by Phone Because of Coronavirus

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court announced on Monday that it would hear arguments by telephone over six days in May. In a major break with tradition, the court said it would for the first time allow live remote access to audio of the arguments.

Among the cases the justices will hear are three about subpoenas from prosecutors and Congress seeking President Trump’s financial records.

“In keeping with public health guidance in response to Covid-19,” a news release from the court said, “the justices and counsel will all participate remotely. The court anticipates providing a live audio feed of these arguments to news media. Details will be shared as they become available.”

Although the release referred only to access by the news media, a court spokeswoman said the audio feed would also be available to the public.
