No additional details about how the cases will be heard, or whether there will be a video component, were announced, but the court said it “anticipates providing a live audio feed” to the news media, which would be a first in the court’s history.
Oral arguments will be heard on May 4-6 and May 11-13, but the specific dates for each case are yet to be determined, the court said.
Roughly half of oral arguments the court was scheduled to hear in March and April will now be postponed until the fall term, lawyers for those cases were told Monday.
Those issues involve a copyright case between Google and Oracle and a case concerning the statute of limitations for rape in the military.
