BISAC: LAW025000

On February 13, 2016, Justice Antonin Scalia passed away unexpectedly at the age of 79, vacating a seat on the Supreme Court which he had held for nearly 30 years. Justice Scalia’s lengthy tenure on the Court, coupled with his strongly held views on how constitutional and statutory texts are to be interpreted, led him to have significant influence on the development of the jurisprudence of various areas of law. This book discusses Justice Scalia’s jurisprudence on key areas of law, as well as how that jurisprudence could be seen to have influenced the Court’s approach to these subject matters. This book also provides an overview of the Supreme Court’s procedural rules and requirements when the Court is staffed with less than nine members; and answers to frequently asked legal questions about filling Supreme Court vacancies.
