Thoughts on Justice Scalia’s Passing

We’re away for the weekend. And I happened to look up and see the news on television at a restaurant. And it still does not quite seem real.

When I was a law student, Scalia opinions were the first ones I remember reading and enjoying. I won’t say that I agreed with them all. But they were all brilliant. And his originalist philosophy was always consistent. So, occasionally it took him to pro-defendant places. Crawford v. Washington is the first one that comes to mind.

As a lawyer, I suppose that these things resonate with me more profoundly than they might in the general public. But this is one of those “I remember where I was when I heard” sorts of news events.

In a while, I will start to think about what is next. But today I reflect on the end of an era.
