    Video of arguments in Delaware Supreme Court cases will now be available online a day or two after they are heard.

    Oral argument videos dating back to Oct. 9 are now posted on the state Supreme Court’s website, with future cases to be posted a few days after they happen.  You can find links to video of cases at  

    Delaware Supreme Court Chief Justice Henry duPont Ridgely says the videos will improve global access to the court’s proceedings and provide a chance for legal professionals and others to learn more about the court.  

    “This convenient access to the cases on appeal will foster public understanding of the work of the Court and also provide educational opportunities for lawyers, professors, teachers, students and the general public to learn about appellate advocacy and appellate decision making in Delaware,” Ridgely said.

    In addition to posting videos, the court is also posting links to written briefs and the court’s final decision in the case all together on one page.  The recordings will be available online for one year.

    Future plans include upgrades to make it possible to live stream arguments.
