Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia Launches Book Tour with Piers Morgan Interview

Last night, Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia launched his book tour with an interview conducted by CNN’s Piers Morgan. Scalia’s co-author, professor Bryan A. Garner, also appeared to discuss their title Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts.

We’ve embedded one clip above. Here’s more from TV Newser: “While interviews with Scalia are unusual, they are not unprecedented. He has spoken to CBS News and PBS’ Charlie Rose in recent years, and has occasionally been interviewed at events that were broadcast on C-SPAN.”
