More About Scalia's Court by Kevin A. Ring
 
 
 
Overview
The sudden passing of Justice Antonin Scalia shook America. After almost thirty years on the Supreme Court, Scalia had become as integral to the institution as the hallowed room in which he sat. His wisecracking interruptions during oral arguments, his unmatched legal wisdom, his unwavering dedication to the Constitution, and his blistering dissents defined his leadership role on the court and inspired new generations of policymakers and legal minds.
Now, as Republicans and Democrats wage war over Scalia s lamentably empty Supreme Court seat, Kevin Ring, former counsel to the U.S. Senate s Constitution Subcommittee, has taken a close look at the cases that best illustrate Scalia s character, philosophy, and legacy. In "Scalia s Court: A Legacy of Landmark Opinions and Dissents," Ring collects Scalia s most memorable opinions on free speech, separation of powers, race, religious freedom, the rights of the accused, abortion, and more; and intersperses Scalia's own words with an analysis of his legal reasoning and his lasting impact on American jurisprudence.
I don t worry about my legacy, Scalia once told an audience at the National Archives. Just do your job right, and who cares?
Now that "the lion of American law has left the stage, as the U.S. Attorney General put it, it is for the rest of America to worry about his legacyand to care.
