Senate Reference Notes

I took notes while watching the Senate Reference hearings last week ― it’s not a verbatim transcript of course, but as close to one as I could manage. In case you are interested in what went on ― beyond my very partial summaries here and here ― but cannot or do not want to watch the whole thing, I have posted the notes here. They are somewhat incomplete in places, and in all likelihood full of typos, but I have neither the time nor the courage to go over them and kick them into shape.

By the way, it would be nice of the Supreme Court to actually post the transcripts of its hearings, along with the recording of the webcast. It’s great to have the latter of course, but one doesn’t always have the time or the means to watch. The transcripts exist anyway, so why not make them available?
