Local Professor Discusses US Supreme Court


The body of judge Antonin Scalia of the US Supreme Court is barely cold after his death during a hunting trip and US politicians are bickering over the nomination of his successor.But finding a candidate willing to undergo the scrutiny unfazed would be a challenge for Obama’s team, especially if that person is essentially risking any hope of getting nominated in the future. The words he was most famous for, however, came mostly when he was on the losing side.In less than a month, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a case that could severely erode women’s ability to access reproductive health-care services. They had lined up over a half a dozen major cases that were going to be decided this June that would’ve changed the landscape more toward a conservative direction more towards Scalia’s direction. Conservatives herald his efforts in this regard. There were no Supreme Court openings in 2008. “This is the first opportunity in many, many years to bring the court more in line with the American people”.With rhetorical verve, if not universal persuasiveness, Scalia wrote that liberal attitudes toward who had standing to litigate “met with approval in the classrooms of Cambridge and New Haven but not in the factories of Detroit and the mines of West Virginia”.
