Ever want to watch the deliberations during Supreme Court sessions but feel frustrated because cameras aren’t allowed? Check out this ABA Blawg 100 Honoree, courtartist.com, “Going Where Cameras Cannot.” It’s the blog of artist Art Lien, who’s been sketching the courts since 1976, most of that time at the Supreme Court. The daily posts include lively sketches and commentary, yesterday’s, on Justice Ginsburg’s return to the bench after a hospitalization and Elonis v. United States, the Facebook “free speech” case that many are following with keen interest.
Georgia Law alum Kaitlin Ball (J.D. 2014) donated a signed Art Lien sketch of Supreme Court oral arguments for Daimler v. Bauman to the Sohn Library on behalf of Professor Tim Meyer and Associate Dean Bo Rutledge to show her appreciation for their support of her academic and professional pursuits.
The sketch shows petitioner Thomas Dupree with Justices Ginsburg and Alito in the background.
