Antonin Scalia Talks Piers Morgan Interview, Dealing With The Media

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has been making the media rounds to promote his new book, and one of the stops was C-SPAN.

C-SPAN’s Brian Lamb asked Scalia about his recent interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, and why Justices are usually so reluctant to do public appearances.

“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.”
