Delaware Supreme Court to offer live video of arguments

DOVER — The public now has the opportunity to watch the Delaware Supreme Court in action thanks to live online video.

The court says in a statement that it’ll begin offering livestreaming video of non-confidential, oral arguments as they happen in Dover on Wednesday.

The court has partnered with Brooklyn-based technology company Livestream to provide the service. It’s free to watch.

The court says it hopes the live broadcast will not only benefit the legal community, but those interested in learning about the state courts also.

Since 2004, the court has posted audio recordings of oral arguments on its website. It started doing the same with video recordings in 2013.

The court will continue to archive video recordings of non-confidential proceedings on its website for those who are unable to watch live.
