Court's foremost originalist will be missed by small business
DC (February 14, 2016) – Karen Harned, Executive Director of the NFIB Small
Business Legal Center, today issued the following statement in
response to the news of the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:
“For a generation of lawyers and constitutional
scholars, Justice Antonin Scalia was as much a teacher as he was a jurist. He was certainly one of the most important
influences in my career, not only because he was brilliant and compelling, but
because he so obviously loved the practice of law. His opinions were equal parts history lesson,
philosophy lesson and moral lesson. And
there’s never been anyone more fun to watch, especially when outnumbered,
defending his own thinking.
“We mourn for his family, of course, especially
his wife, children and grandchildren. We
extend to them our deepest sympathies.
And we mourn for the country as well.
Justice Scalia is irreplaceable.”
