Antonin Scalia: The Constitution is ‘Dead’
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says the Constitution is “dead, dead, dead,” rather than a “living document.”
“It’s not a living document,” Scalia said on Monday while speaking at Dallas-based Southern Methodist University, according to a report from the Dallas Morning News. “It’s dead, dead, dead.”
He appeared with SMU law professor Bryan A. Garner, with whom Scalia has written books, as they also addressed keeping personal views out of legal interpretation.
