On Scalia's (and Garner's) Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts
|Because it hasn't been ProView-ed (yet?).
Perhaps Justice Scalia doesn't use WestlawNext.
Or perhaps TR Legal wouldn't give the authors
click-thru payments for advertising WLN.
From the blurb: "In this groundbreaking book..." yadda yadda. Available at WestMart for $49.95 and Amazon for $44.90. Luckily I pre-ordered a copy from Amazon for $37.60. Perhaps I should have waited until it was on the "Deal of the Day" e-rack 'em up because someone is cashing in his chips.
Do note the book's disclaimer:
The views expressed in this book are those of the authors as legal commentators. Nothing in this book prejudges any case that might come before the United States Supreme Court.
I think the message here is that SCOTUS brief writers should first cite to an opinion by Justice Scalia and then tack on a see also reference. Always the prankster during oral argument, we might hear Scalia say, "oh, Garner wrote that section." [JH]
