The Supreme Court has changed dramatically as a result of Antonin Scalia’s tenure as a justice, said Jason Mazzone, the Lynn H. Murray Faculty Scholar in Law and co-director of the Program in Constitutional Theory, History, and Law at the University of Illinois College of Law. Mazzone spoke with the Illinois News Bureau about Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s influence on jurisprudence in the U.S. Here's an excerpt:
"Scalia’s constant defense of originalism and textualism has had a profound impact on how judges decide cases, and thus how lawyers argue them. Whatever the fate of originalism and textualism without Scalia to champion them, judges will forever know they need to explain, justify, and defend the methodological tools they use in reaching their decisions."
