A passing reference by Justice Scalia In his recent much-publicized New York Magazine interview reveals that Justice Scalia, a Harvard Law grad, identifies himself for posterity with a University of Michigan Law grad:
You know, for all I know, 50 years from now I may be the Justice Sutherland of the late-twentieth and early-21st century, who's regarded as: "He was on the losing side of everything, an old fogey, the old view." And I don't care.
Justice George Sutherland, of Utah, is described in this Atlantic piece as a "great conservative jurist best known for obstructing the New Deal." At the University of Michigan Law School he studied under Thomas M. Cooley.
