Tom Goldstein, publisher of Peabody Award SCOTUSblog, isn't going away. Although last year he had a U.S. Senate press pass to the U.S. Supreme Court, SCOTUS would not honor it. This year the U.S. Senate didn't issue him a pass. So, to cover SCOTUS hearings, Goldstein had to take a public seat or rely on a Boston reporter's credentials. Goldstein plans to fight this. Litigation is a possibility. Here is how Politico reports on this.
In its refusal, SCOTUS indicated it will review its policy. This is a digital era and blogs are a mature medium. If SCOTUS sustains its barring of blogs which have proved themselves credible, will that reflect negatively on its ability to rule on social media cases?
