On the Bench and Off, the Eminently Quotable Justice Scalia

Breaking News

Justice David H. Souter’s retirement may deprive the Supreme Court of a careful judge, but he was never good material for newspaper columnists looking for scraps of color. For that, you want to keep up with Justice Antonin Scalia.

In the last couple of weeks, Justice Scalia has explained to a law student why she will probably never serve as a law clerk on the Supreme Court, had an interesting tussle with Justice John Paul Stevens and cited foreign law to boot. May he never retire.

My sense of it is that Scalia, active Opus Dei member, Bush installer (talk about judicial activism), can't retire soon enough. I could see his vote supporting theocracy ... his reasoning is loose enough elsewhere.
