Put the Supremes on Your iPod

Our friends at OYEZ.org have now made it ridiculously easy to download MP3s of classic U.S. Supreme Court oral arguments for free under a Creative Commons license.

Here’s a list of the first wave of Supreme Court recordings that OYEZ has embedded with license information.

Download (warning: big) a few here if you like, then browse OYEZ for a few dozen more:

(1) Roe v. Wade;

(2) the Pentagon Papers case;

(3) Miranda v. Arizona;

(4) the Sam Sheppard (a.k.a., “the Fugitive”) murder appeal;

(5) the justly titled Loving v. Virginia (in which the Court overturned a Virginia law banning inter-racial marriage).

OYEZ also has the audio from the recent affirmative action cases Gratz and Grutter.

Not jogging music, exactly — but many of them do get the blood going. Hats off to OYEZ for this ongoing public service.
