Antonin Gregory Scalia (born March 11, 1936) is an American jurist and the second most senior Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Appointed by Republican President Ronald Reagan, he is considered to be a core member of the conservative wing of the court.
Justice Scalia is a vigorous proponent of textualism in statutory interpretation and originalism in constitutional interpretation, By implication from his originalism, Scalia vigorously opposes the idea of a living constitution, which is a concept in American constitutional interpretation which suggests that the Constitution should be seen as continually evolving with the society that implements it. For Scalia, this idea misunderstands and negates what he calls the "anti-evolutionary purpose" of a constitution. A society that adopts a constitution, he says, "is skeptical...that societies always 'mature,' as opposed to rot." Scalia notes further that many important social advances, such as women's suffrage, were achieved not by judicial fiat but constitutional amendments - whose adoption, Scalia adds, is slow and cumbersome by design. The idea is that amending of the Constitution allows for democratic change as opposed to top-down rule by judges. Scalia often relies upon tradition and history to discern the original meaning of unclear constitutional provisions and considers legislative history to be an irrelevant and unreliable interpretive tool. This position often puts him at odds with Justice Breyer, who is perhaps the Court's most steadfast proponent of attempting to discern the overarching legislative objectives of statutes.Consistent with his formalist sensibilities, Scalia seeks to maximize the role of the legislature in shaping law and to minimize judicial discretion in its interpretation. For this reason he favors bright-line rules over abstract balancing tests and frowns upon judicially-crafted compromises between the requirements of the Constitution and perceived expediency.
Scalia is generally perceived as a staunchly conservative member of the court. He has received the lowest Segal-Cover score of the current justices, and the lowest of all Supreme Court nominees measured; whereby the lower the score the more conservative a justice is presumed to be, and the higher the score the more liberal a justice is presumed to be. In a 2003 statistical analysis of Supreme Court voting patterns, Scalia and Justice Thomas emerged as the most conservative. However, his originalism occasionally brings results that defy conservative administrations.
