I'm currently watching a judgment (including a dissenting judgment) being delivered from the Supreme Court, by the judges, on RTE News Now.

Very interesting and this seems like a great development.

Very positive development but only if it is restricted to the Supreme Court. I hope lower trial courts won't be broadcast.

I will watch with interest!

Agreed. The case I've just seen was an appeal by somebody abused in a nursing home. A very interesting dissenting judgment.

While I welcome this development there is VAST reform required of the legal profession and the Courts Service.

Let's see a lot more court work televised.

Let's see all Judges and barristers without wigs or gowns.

Let's have the cost of legal services drastically reduced and reformed.

Televising what often passes for justice in this country would shock many people. The court reporters don't cover half of it. You have to wonder why.
