When he was a Supreme Court justice, David Souter famously remarkedon the notion of TV cameras recording the proceedings in the highest court in the land. 

"I think the case is so strong," Justice Souter said, "that I can tell you the day you see a camera come into our courtroom, it's going to roll over my dead body."



Of course, Souter is very much with us, though he stepped down from the court in 2009. TV cameras, however, are still barred from the Supreme Court.

What's your opinion? Should TV cameras be allowed inside the Supreme Court during oral arguments. Share your views in the comments section below While you're pondering, you can view C-Span's presentation of the audio recording from Tuesday's arguments in the same-sex marriage case.
