The Passing of a Giant


The political and legal world is reeling with the sudden passing of Justice Antonin Scalia.  Appointed to the Supreme Court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan, Justice Scalia’s jurisprudence was steeped in originalism.  In his almost thirty years on the court, his conservative voice was equally lauded and abhorred.  Justice Scalias’s voice is silenced now, but will echo down the halls of history.  Visit the library's catalog to locate books and read articles authored by Justice Scalia.
