Fight at Georgetown Law over Scalia's passing
The latest exchange is detailed at Above the Law. A short summary: Georgetown issued a generic statement to the effect that it mourned Scalia's passing (he was a Georgetown undergrad). Two law profs sent out a response, which stopped only a little short of "we're glad he's dead." It called him "a defender of privilege, oppression and bigotry, one whose intellectual positions were not brilliant but simplistic and formalistic." Profs Randy Barnett and Nicolas Rosenkrantz responded, and hit hard. "[W]ere Georgetown Law a genuinely diverse intellectual institution, I doubt any faculty member could have been so callous on this occasion."
