ScotusBlog provides links to all kinds of coverage of the goings-on with Justice Scalia, including his assertion that the 14th amendment does not extend to women’s right and his participation in Michelle Bachmann’s Constitution course for incoming House members. Especially considering the issues that are going to come to the Court given the division among the President, the two houses of Congress, and state officials, this type of interaction between the court and the legislature is definitely worth noting and watching.
