Tuesday round-up

In anticipation of Constitution Day today, Justice Antonin Scalia spoke yesterday at George Washington University, where he criticized “judicial activism” – both at home and in courts overseas – and advocated an originalist approach to constitutional interpretation.  Coverage of the event comes from Tony Mauro of the BLT and Jeremy Leaming at ACSblog, while at the Constitutional Accountability Center’s Text and History Blog Elizabeth Wydra suggests that the Justice “left out an essential part of the story about why our Constitution’s Framers established our federal government system: the Articles of Confederation.”

In The Washington Post, Robert Barnes reviews the story of Baby Veronica – the child at the center of last Term’s custody battle in Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl, who turned four on Sunday – and the “legal wrangling” that has followed the Court’s decision in late June.
