Where was Justice Scalia today?

June 30th, 2014

Politico reports that Nino was not in session today:

Scalia was not at the court on Monday and a court spokeswoman said he was traveling.

I can’t quite tell from Art’s position, but it seems Scalia’s chair is empty.

So where was Justice Scalia? In Galway, Ireland, teaching at a summer study program sponsored by my school, the South Texas College of Law.
