Lots of Internet chatter about what was said as part of the oral argument for the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) case – Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin (14-981). The case deals with the use of racial preferences in undergraduate admissions decisions.
You can read the official transcript of the arguments. They are available off the SCOTUS website http://www.supremecourt.gov/
After you bring up this page, move down to the heading “Recent Arguments.” Look for the “transcript” link under Wednesday, December 09 for Fisher. The link will pull up a pdf copy of the written transcript. The audio may be posted on this same page on Friday, December 11, subject to the Court’s final review.
The transcripts of oral arguments are posted on this Web site on the same day an argument is heard by the Court. Same-day transcripts are considered official but subject to final review. The audio recordings of all oral arguments heard by the Supreme Court of the United States are available to the public at the end of each argument week. The audio recordings are posted on Fridays after Conference.
