  • 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 leadershipThe 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 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 legacy and to care.

    1. The important thing in Democracy is not to win, but to take part the important thing in Life is not to have conquered but to have fought well.The Socrates of SCOTUSAbout four years ago, I had an interesting GR group discussion of the trial and death of Socrates Someone said that the Athenians were good at sophistry, not sound reasoning, whereas the judicial system in the US was conducive to reasoned judgments I said, You would be hard pressed to prove that the Athenians arguments are not well r [...]

    2. Justice Scalia uses the mastery of English language and logic to state his opinions with amazing clarity The brutality of simplicity of logic with which Justice Scalia takes apart, brick by brick if you will, the opinion of majority is awe inspiring The consistency with which he applies the principles of textualism and originalism to his opinions and dissents should serve as a counter argument to anyone claiming favoritism on Scalia s part This book is not an easy read for a laymen of law, such [...]

    3. This is a well curated collection of Justice Scalia s writing It is a collection of his most interesting and fun to read opinions and dissents, not necessarily his most important and noteworthy writing I think this is a breath of fresh air there are a lot of resources if you re looking for his most important and noteworthy opinions This collection of writings is about how Justice Scalia had a both a particularly well developed view of the world and of jurisprudence, and how he was uniquely gifte [...]

    4. I m so grateful I read this book It was so educational and encouraged us to learn about the law of our country My family and I had some interesting discussions because of it Scalia was a brilliant, thoughtful, funny man I m glad we learned about him.

    5. I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with the English language all over again This book changed my life Buy this book now and thank me later.

    6. A fascinating work This is a large anthology of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia s legal opinion that he penned in landmark Supreme Court cases It brought back memories of reading Supreme Court decisions back in my undergraduate days in UCLA The subject of this work is fascinating but in light of my busy schedule with work and other readings I knew I wasn t going to read this 592 page book anytime soon However discovering that this book was available in audiobook format was just too good to [...]

    7. This was a difficult book to read Not because the material is hard, although there were several passages I had to wade through, but because Scalia is graphic in his descriptions on occasion I took several breathers on the passages about Partial Birth Abortions for example I never really understood what that entailed and it was so shocking and horrific to me that I had to stop for awhile Scalia s opinions are so articulate and well written He makes them almost a narrative as opposed to legal brie [...]

    8. Scalia was brilliant Progressives may certainly disagree with his opinions, but having read some of SCOTUS s decisions, I don t think any of them could seriously argue with his approach His writing was exquisite Anyone interested in some of the most important cases of our times owes it to themselves to read this book Highly recommended
