Yesterday, ALA President Michael Scodro, and Illinois Solicitor General and ALA member Carolyn Shapiro appeared on Chicago Tonight to discuss the legacy of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia who passed away over the weekend. Joining Scodro and Shapiro on the panel were David Franklin and Andrew DeVooght. All four panel members previously clerked at the Supreme Court, though not for Justice Scalia, and each discussed a personal memory of him.

The panel discussed Justice Scalia's colorful writing, his renowned dissents and his interactions with other justices of the Court. The panel also discussed the future of the Court without Justice Scalia.
