Steven Calabresi & Justin Braga: The Jurisprudence of Justice Antonin Scalia
Michael Ramsey

Steven Calabresi (Northwestern University - School of Law) and Justin Braga (Brown University) have posted The Jurisprudence of Justice Antonin Scalia: A Response to Professor Bruce Allen Murphy and Professor Justin Driver on SSRN. Here is the abstract: 

This is a book review of Professor Bruce Allen Murphy’s recent biography of Justice Antonin Scalia entitled: Scalia: A Court of One. We show that Professor Murphy’s account of events to which Professor Calabresi was in part a witness is wrong and at times almost blinded by anti-Catholicsm. In addition, we are baffled by Professor Murphy’s utter disregard for Justice Scalia’s contributions to the field of legal interpretation and his mis-understanding of Supreme Court history. All in all, we believe Justice Scalia should be praised for his many accomplishments, his contributions to the law, and his impact on the theories of textual interpretation.
