Description

US Marshal Defends Erasure of Scalia Speech The Honolulu Advertiser A U.S. marshal said a deputy's erasure of two journalists' recordings of a speech by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was appropriate, given that one of the service's responsibilities is to provide a traveling Supreme Court justice with security. However, Nehemiah Flowers, the U.S. marshal for the Southern District of Mississippi, conceded Friday that Scalia's request that his remarks not be recorded should have been publicly announced before the speech. Flowers said the fact no announcement was made regarding Scalia's wishes, "could have possibly been a faux pas on our behalf."
