The news is all over the place. Justice Antonin Scalia passed away today. The New York Times has an article on it: Justice Antonin Scalia, Who Led a Conservative Renaissance on the Supreme Court, Is Dead at 79.
Scalia was a Justice with whom we usually agreed — except for his well-known dislike of the Lemon test, which Judge Jones relied upon in reaching his decision in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District . We discussed that in detail in our last post about him. However, as is our custom, we don’t speak disparagingly of people at times like this.
Overall, we think Scalia was a great Justice, and he’ll be missed.
