+  Scalia as you've never seen him before (2 segments)

  • Description: The Supreme Court will likely never see another Antonin Scalia. He was a towering legal figure who was also a beloved husband and father and a devout Catholic. Despite their vast ideological differences, he maintained a close friendship with fellow Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a relationship that should serve as a model in a time of such political division. His son Christopher Scalia joins us with a look at previously-unpublished writings that shine a new light on the inner workings of this transformative figure.
