Unedited Oral Arguments before the Supreme Court offers audio files of complete oral arguments before the Supreme Court in landmark cases. The site currently includes: United States v. Nixon (executive privilege - 1974); Roe v. Wade - 1973; Griswold v. Connecticut (Planned Parenthood challenging a Connecticut law that declared counseling married persons on the use of contraceptives a crime - 1965); and Pennsylvania v. Casey (informed consent and 24 hour waiting period for abortions - 1992), among others. Background information, the constitutional question, the conclusion, and the vote are provided for each case. Selected cases include hypertext links to the actual opinions. The arguments are in RealAudio format. Professor Jerry Goldman, a political scientist at Northwestern University, created the site and states it is the beginning of an ambitious project to digitize 400 hours of audio files.
