C-SPAN offering Supreme Court Week

C-SPAN will offer interviews with current and past U.S. Supreme Court justices during the U.S. cable network's Supreme Court Week, The Washington Post said.

The Post reported Saturday that viewers of the C-SPAN special The Supreme Court: Home to America's Highest Court, set to begin on Sunday, will receive an inside look at the nation's top court and the people who sit the bench.

Interspersed among the individual interviews with current and retired justices will be a Supreme Court tour with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsberg offers insights into the never-before-filmed robing room featured in the series, along with her take on the cuisine available at the Supreme Court dining room.

The food is not exactly haute cuisine, Ginsberg said.

The Post said Supreme Court Week on the network dedicated to airing footage of government proceedings is timed to match up with the official reconvening of the Supreme Court on Monday.
