Antonin Scalia

Here Cum Da Judge or, Hot Scalia Action!


Over at Nobody's Business (appropriately enough), Rogier van Bakel wades into the controversy over Justice Scalia's--a dissenter in the Lawrence v. Texas sodomy case--refusal to answer the question, "When did you stop sodomizing your wife?"

A law student named Eric Berndt has been catching a lot of flak for asking Justice Antonin Scalia during a public forum at NYU a few days ago, "Do you sodomize your wife?" According to NYUnews,

Scalia refused to answer the question while the crowd gasped and the administrators promptly turned off Berndt's microphone.

Granted, it's not a very polite thing to ask. But context is everything. Scalia, unbelievably, makes it his business to pass judgment on what consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedroom. Berndt's question was prompted by Scalia's dissent in Lawrence v. Texas, two years ago.

Whole thing here.
