Antonin Scalia

Tracking the latest from Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court's most antigay justice. A strong proponent for the executive branch, Scalia is known for his scatching opinions, which stem from a belief that the U.S. Constitution should not be interpreted as an evolving document that reflects the mores of modern society. Rather, as an originalist, he believes it should be read as it was interpreted at the time of its adoption, a belief that has led to his dismissal of legislative history in his Supreme Court decisions. Antonin has lead the dissent in numerous cases that have impacted LGBT rights, including Lawrence v. Texas and U.S. v. Windsor.
