We were able to obtain copies of some recent Supreme Court arguments. You will need Quicktime to view them. Let us know if you like this service. We can only convert those we receive. So if you have a case on disk or videotape, let us know. We can then convert it to streaming video on the web, and you can then link to your own argument from your own web site.
Some that we would like to post are civil cases addressing the lost chance doctrine in med mal case and the statute of frauds argument involving Melbourne Mills.
