Description

Justice Scalia Stirring Controversy The Honolulu Advertiser In the space of a few days, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia groused when his colleagues overturned a Texas death sentence, needled them about a gay rights decision and sarcastically suggested their church-state ruling could steal health benefits from nuns. He found something bad in each of six divided rulings handed down this week, unusually contentious even for a justice known for his volume of passionate dissents. Scalia was on the losing side in five rulings this week, more than any other justice. And he wasn't fully satisfied with a sixth decision, noting his opposition to one paragraph and a footnote.
