I just might make it there. For those that aren't able to make it in person, the court will post the audio recording of the oral arguments. they typically get it up pretty fast.

Is that pretty unusual? What's the usual number of hearings each day -- couple in the morning, couple in the afternoon?

Make it an East Coast weekend - go to Beantown or NYC for St. Paddy's Day, and then, when the hangover clears, got to DC for Heller !:D

IIRC, it's two, one hour arguments in the morning and afternoon arguments as needed.

2, maybe 4 hours of argument on a 2 Ammendment issue? Wow! I've always thought that it would take at least a week for both sides to argue. So the justices take up to a week to decide the case, no?

Most cases heard in March will have decisions issued by the end of June. I would not expect the decision to come out quickly. Quickly would be a month, not weeks.

It is interesting that they did schedule arguments in the other morning slot that morning.
