We checked in with the Justice to see how he felt about his online information being aggregated and mined by the professor and his 15 students.
Scalia was far from pleased (though we were pleased that a Supreme Court Justice would honor Above The Law with a response). Check out his reply to us, after the jump.
Here is Justice Scalia’s response, in all its scathing glory:
I stand by my remark at the Institute of American and Talmudic Law conference that it is silly to think that every single datum about my life is private. I was referring, of course, to whether every single datum about my life deserves privacy protection in law.It is not a rare phenomenon that what is legal may also be quite irresponsible. That appears in the First Amendment context all the time. What can be said often should not be said. Prof. Reidenberg’s exercise is an example of perfectly legal, abominably poor judgment. Since he was not teaching a course in judgment, I presume he felt no responsibility to display any.
Reidenberg may have terrible judgment, but it’s fairly impressive he managed to get bench-slapped by One First Street from a classroom at Fordham Law School.
