Oral Arguments

Effective May 1, 2013 on a one-year trial basis, oral arguments are posted on the website of the Tennessee Court System 20 days after oral argument and are available to the general public. A party to an appeal may file a motion with the appellate court to exclude the oral argument from posting on the internet for good cause shown.  See Supreme Court Rule 30.  Examples of good cause include a showing that the posting of audio recordings would create a safety threat for a party, witness, lawyer, or other individual involved in the litigation, or a showing that private or embarrassing information affecting a juvenile was disclosed in oral argument.  That motion must be filed no later than 10 days after the oral argument is heard.

Audio disc recordings of oral arguments after February 2007 are available at a cost of $20.00. These recordings are in a "wav" format and can be played on any personal computer or other electronic device that has Windows Media Player.  Persons interested in obtaining such discs may contact the Appellate Court Clerk's Office at 615-741-2681 or 401 7th Avenue North, Nashville, Tennessee 37219.

Audio devices are available for the hearing impaired who wish to attend an oral argument.  Such requests should be made to Mike Catalano, the Clerk, at 615-741-1314 well in advance of the argument.
