Quid Pro Quote

“I do not apply universal rights. It’s my job to apply American law as expressed in the constitution and in the laws passed by Congress. I do not apply the laws of God or of anyone who promulgates so-called international law.” -Justice Antonin G. Scalia in a phone interview with a reporter from the Italian publication Corriera Della Sera. The justice spoke this week in at an event in Turin celebrating the centennial anniversary of philosopher and lawyer Bruno Leoni’s birth.
