Scalia Shares Legal Insights in Memphis

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was in Memphis last Friday at several events connected to the law school and at a public luncheon. Notable remarks from the day included a defense of gridlock in the nation’s capital, the suggestion that the U.S. Supreme Court is not the most important court in the country and an endorsement for maintaining the third year of law school. Scalia also promoted the importance of an independent judiciary and the U.S. system of a decentralized government. The Memphis Daily News and the Memphis Business Journal have more on the visit.
