Scalia Won't Step Aside From Cheney Case WASHINGTON (AP) - In typically combative style, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia dismissed a request Thursday that he stay out of a case involving his friend, Vice President Dick Cheney, saying a duck hunting trip they took was acceptable socializing that wouldn't cloud his judgment. "If it is reasonable to think that a Supreme Court justice can be bought so cheap, the nation is in deeper trouble than I had imagined," Scalia wrote in response to the Sierra Club's request that he disqualify himself.
Newsflash. Parkerdad refuses to take a baby step and refers to it as a mental leap.
Scalia is asked to recuse himself from a decision directly concerning a hunting buddy. Most judges refuse to attend the same events as persons that have cases before them, much less involve themselves in close personal relationships and financial alliances. No need to buy Scalia though, he was owned by special interests before the hunting trip.
