Flushing Toilet Heard During Supreme Court Arguments

Leave it to us to find the toilet news during a global pandemic...

With the coronavirus outbreak closing the Supreme Court building, the justices have had to conduct oral arguments over conference calls.

And like most people having to use the phone for work from home sometimes weird background sounds are heard...and in this case, it was the sound of a toilet flush that interrupted some questioning.

It happened during the court’s argument involving a federal law cracking down on so-called robocalls.

Justice Elena Kagan was questioning attorney Roman Martinez and while he was speaking, what sounded like a click and a rush of water could be heard on the audio feed.

That feed was also being broadcast live on C-SPAN and a clip of the audio quickly made its way around on social media.

Martinez said in an email the sound did not come from his end of the conversation and Kathy Arberg, a spokesperson for the court did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

Listen to the clip below and judge for yourself...
