Justice Scalia continued to make headlines yesterday.  The Associated Press (via The (Columbus, Ind.) Republic) provides additional coverage of the Justice’s recent interview with Thomson Reuters (which Kiran covered in Tuesday’s round-up); among other things, the Justice disclosed that it “enrages” him when people refer to the Court as “politicized.”  The Hill has “five key takeaways” from Jeffrey Toobin’s forthcoming book on the Court, including Toobin’s portrayal of Justice Scalia “as increasingly cranky and partisan – and infuriated with Chief Justice John Roberts over the [C]ourt’s recent decisions on healthcare and immigration”; the Associated Press (via The Washington Post) also provides coverage of Toobin’s book.  At The Wall Street Journal (subscription required), David Shapiro reports on Justice Scalia’s recent speech at the New York Athletic Club.  And the website of William & Mary Law School reports that the school recently celebrated the Justice’s contributions during a visit in which Justice Scalia “taught a class, fielded questions from students and faculty and received the Law School’s Marshall-Wythe Medallion.”
