Why You should care about Scalia’s Death.

Your Classic Overachiever wrote a very informative entry on why the death of Justice Scalia matters. Everybody, especially those not in the legal field, should understand what implications Justice Scalia’s sudden death has on cases being heard this term, and what it means for this election season.

Everybody knows of Justice Scalia’s talent for writing intense and sometimes insulting dissents, but he was so much more than that. He was a pillar in the Conservative community, interpreted the Constitution in a strict way, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s best friend. The hole that he leaves is a large one (literally and figuratively) and the process to fill it will be a long and arduous one.
