Law Professors at University of Washington Call Scalia “Polarizing”

Kicking a man while he’s down (and dead)…doesn’t sound classy. Some law professors weren’t happy about Scalia’s legacy:

A panel of law professors gathered Wednesday at the University of Washington Law School to discuss “the legacy” of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia but capitalized on every opportunity to scold his “polarizing” personality.

“He was brilliant; I don’t think he was quite that important,” Professor Neil Richards said, referencing a recent interview with one of Scalia’s former law clerks who called the late Justice one of the ten greatest figures in Anglo-American law.
