Court of Current Issues (also known as Court of Public Opinion) is a nontraditional court show featuring public-affairs debates. The program aired live on Tuesday nights from 1948-1951 on the DuMont Television Network. Originally a half-hour in length, it expanded to 60 minutes in 1949.

The series was scheduled opposite Milton Berle's popular Texaco Star Theater on NBC, hence it did not receive a wide audience.

Episode status

A 14-minute fragment from the March 3, 1949 episode survives at the Paley Center for Media.
