A reader wrote to ask whether the Mervyn's/Branick oral argument on Prop. 64 retroactivity will be broadcast next Wednesday. Within the past year or so, the Supreme Court started allowing California Channel to broadcast selected oral arguments over its satellite channel and on the web. As far as I can tell from the Court's press releases page, there has been no announcement that this argument has been selected to be broadcast. If past history is a guide, such an announcement could still be forthcoming. The press releases don't seem to come out until a few days before the argument. For example, last time they made the announcement four court days before the argument.
