Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has been making the media rounds to promote his new book, and one of the stops was C-SPAN.
“I am sensitive about it because judges ought to express their views on the law in their opinions,” Scalia said. “Everything I had to say about the real legal issues in Bush vs. Gore was set forth in the opinion that I joined. Beyond that, I am just either repeating myself or adding things that re really not the basis for my decision. I also dont like drawing the courts into the political maelstrom, by having their opinions repeatedly pawed over, especially the controversial ones.”
