Court Hears Cheney Energy Task-Force Case

The Supreme Court hears arguments on whether Vice President Dick Cheney must reveal details of his energy task force, in response to lawsuits from two groups. Solicitor General Theodore Olson, defending the government, argues that the constitution allows the executive branch to gather private advice. The groups suing say industry input into U.S. policy should be public. NPR's Nina Totenberg reports.
