. . . taken in a session of the people's court. The U.S. Supreme Court opens all oral arguments, which will recommence tomorrow, to the public. Visitors can sit in on an entire two-hour session or grab a brief glimpse. Seating is limited, so join one of the two lines that form on the plaza in front of the court early. One other tip before you go: Dress conservatively. It seems certain justices have objected to some visitors' fashion sense, asking one woman to remove a deep orange bandanna she had tied in her hair and telling another to find a jacket to wear over her outfit.
