Supreme Court Oral Argument Audio Streaming

The Supreme Judicial Court now provides live audio streaming of its oral arguments, and streaming of the recordings of arguments for approximately two weeks after the arguments, as a service to the public. If you experience problems listening to the stream, please email us at lawcourt.clerk@courts.maine.gov so that we may determine if there is a technical issue or a common problem for listeners that we can address. Please include information on what device you were using to listen (PC, Mac, iOS, or Android) and, if on a PC or Mac, what browser you were using.

Live Streaming

The live stream will be active only while the Court is in session and on the bench. The schedule of the Court's next oral argument session, with a summary of the issues in each case, is on the Oral Argument Schedule page. The Court's schedule for the year is available on the Court's Calendar page.

The stream for each argument will begin approximately five minutes before the argument is scheduled to begin, but will be muted until the Court takes the bench.

To listen to the stream:

  • On a desktop computer, use the player on this page, below. The audio should start automatically when the argument is in session if you leave this page open in your browser.
  • On an iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch), click on this link. If the argument is not in session when you click the link, retry the link a minute or two later; the audio will not start automatically when the argument begins.
