The Supreme Court Plaza on a Sunny Day

Today was a beautiful fall day in Washington, DC, and after the Jones argument I shot this 10-second video of what it’s like on the front steps of the Supreme Court after a 10 am oral argument. Note that the people in line are waiting to get a brief glimpse of the 11am argument, which based on the transcript looks like would have been more than enough. The Court police officers shoo away folks who want to stand on the steps of the Court, but they let people hang out on the plaza below. In any event, readers who live in DC or who have been to the Supreme Court know what this is like, but I figured I would post it for those readers who have never paid a visit.

(For the record, a voice calling my name is not generally part of the experience.)
