Americans Shouldn’t Have to Camp Out to Witness Legal History

The line started forming last Thursday for fewer than 100 seats set aside for the general public at the Supreme Court, where two monumental gay-rights cases were argued this week.

Millions of Americans would have loved to watch legal history. But other than those hardy urban campers, invited guests and about 100 Supreme Court lawyers, the public was shut out.

That’s because the high court won’t let go of its anachronistic ban on TV cameras. It’s not clear how many justices oppose them, or why. Such decisions are made in private.
