No, I have no special connection to the last Justice Scalia. No, I was not a big fan of his opinions (and, more accurately, his many dissents). However, I learned long ago to read his opinions and dissents. He was a brilliant legal scholar, a literate writer, and a debater to be feared.
Over the past couple of years in the DLP program, we studied many of Justice Scalia’s dissents and opinions. The dissents were always more fun.
Here are some links to quotes from the great mind, now silenced.
