SCALIA.

Rumpole, check out the 2 criminal law opinions this morning. Justice Scalia wrote a 5-4 opinion (Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts) in favor of a criminal defendant on a confrontation clause issue and in another case (Safford v. Redding), joined Justice Souter's opinion in favor of a high school student challenging a strip search on Fourth Amendment grounds. More to follow...

(Still waiting on my $100).

Scalia ain't one of my people.

So, just when all of you on this blog are ready to kick Scalia butt, he decides in favor of criminal defendants? Was that the US Supreme Court? Oh boy, going to get cases now!

Scalia makes a mean pasta and meatballs.
