In Memoriam: Justice Scalia


While I did not always agree with Justice Scalia’s theory of jurisprudence or the Constitution, I remember very well when he was appointed to the Court in 1986 by President Reagan.  I was 26 and a recently graduated lawyer, eager to observe all things legal.  I am now surprised to contemplate the unexpected death of Justice Scalia and the impact of his 30 years on the Court.  Check out some of the articles and accolades below about his life and tenure on the Court.
