Justice Scalia Dissents From Himself

March 20th, 2013

From¬†12-52. Dan’s City Used Cars, Inc. v. Pelkey:


JUSTICE SCALIA: So you want us to eat those words, they were wrong, or — or somehow you don’t come within them?

MR. BOUFFARD: Respectfully, Justice Scalia, I think those words came from your dissent in that case.

JUSTICE SCALIA: Ah. (Laughter.)

JUSTICE SCALIA: I forgot that. (Laughter.)

JUSTICE SCALIA: So you say they were wrong, you say? (Laughter.)

It’s hard to remember all those dissents!
