PORTLAND — Maine's highest court is making audio recordings of oral arguments available on its website.
The Maine Supreme Judicial Court says the public can now listen to lawyers make their arguments in cases that they've appealed to the state's high court. The recordings will remain on the website for about two weeks after the appeal is heard.
Chief Justice Leigh Saufley says the service provides Mainers with greater access to the workings of the courts.
The website has had live streaming audio of oral arguments when they take place since the spring of 2012.
