Idaho Supreme Court to broadcast arguments live on the web

BOISE, Idaho (AP) A live stream of oral arguments presented at the Idaho Supreme Court will begin over the web this month, bringing all of the legal action to residents, reporters and other interested parties even if they're far away from the courthouse.

The high court made the announcement Friday, saying the live streaming would begin on Aug. 20 through a partnership with Idaho Public Television.

The public TV station already has a live streaming service for the Idaho Legislature. Initially only the Supreme Court arguments held in Boise will be streamed, though that may change in the future. The live stream will be available on both the Idaho Supreme Court's website and Idaho Public Television's Legislature Live website.
