With a 55-45 vote in the United States Senate, Vice President Michael Pence gaveled the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch as a Supreme Court Justice into history. After the Democrats voted in such a manner as to trigger the nuclear option, the seat of the late Justice Scalia was filled with a judge of impeccable honor and integrity.

And thus begins the Reshaping of the SCOTUS. In the four years, possibly eight, that lie ahead for President Trump, I predict that there will be AT LEAST two more vacancies to fill. Given that the Libs have triggered the nuclear option, the conservative Court will shape our judicial branch for at least a generation.

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.

Reid: Roberts ‘didn’t tell us the truth’

By | 3/27/09 11:02 AM EDT 

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Friday that John Roberts misled the Senate during his confirmation hearings by pretending to be a moderate — and that the United States is now “stuck” with him as chief justice. 

“Roberts didn’t tell us the truth. At least Alito told us who he was,” Reid said, referring to Samuel Alito, the second Supreme Court justice nominated by President George W. Bush. “But we’re stuck with those two young men, and we’ll try to change by having some moderates in the federal courts system as time goes on — I think that will happen.”

      Like Justice Thomas did after Justice Souter denied the Donofrio v. Wells case, and scheduled it for Court conference, Justice Scalia today distributed the case of Wrotnowski v. Bysiewicz (Connecticut Secretary of State) for December 12th conference review after Justice Ginsberg had denied it.

     Without any fanfare or discussion, the US Supreme Court today announced that it denied hearing the case of Leo Donofrio v. Wells (NJ Secretary of State), wherein he sought an emergency stay on the Electoral College until Barack Obama’s citizenship could be verified.

     Then, just a shor time later, Justice Scalia set the Wrotnowski case for conference review at this Friday’s weekly conference. As stated in a prior post, it is highly unusual for a Justice to bring a case to the conference after another Justice had denied it. Leo Donofrio, in commenting about the Wrotnowski case, has stated that he believes that Cort Wrotnowski’s filing is substantively and procedurally more sound than his case was on its face.

      Here is a listing of the cases in the system that are questioning Obama’s citizenship and his eligibility to be the President of the United States:
