Scalia’s silver anniversary

After officially announcing the start of the Supreme Court’s October 2011 Term, Chief Justice John G. Roberts took a moment to mark another milestone: Justice Antonin Scalia’s quarter century on the Court.

Roberts noted that Scalia was confirmed on Sept. 26, 1986, and that he heard his first oral argument “on the first Monday in October, 25 years ago.”

“The place has not been the same since,” Roberts said, drawing laughs from the audience as well as from the justices – Scalia included.
