No more video arguments in 4/3

Today's the day that 4/3 ends its video oral argument program. Most practitioners agree that oral argument by video isn't as effective as a live appearance anyway. Even so, no one likes to see notices like this: "Due to budget constraints, this division’s oral argument video conference program is suspended indefinitely effective May 15, 2013."

"Budget cuts killed the video stars."
