Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens comments on cameras in the Court. "On the one hand, televising the Court would be good for the Court and for the country because I think people would realize that the justices are very thorough in their preparation for arguments and their understanding of the cases. They ask intelligent questions. People I think are generally favorably impressed when they see the Court at work." He continues, "But the other side of the coin is that television often has unexpected and unintended consequences. You're never 100% sure that might not cause a change in the procedure that would have an adverse effect on it." This is from a C-SPAN Q&A interview which will air in its entirety on Sunday, October 9 at 8pm ET on C-SPAN.
