Prior to confirmation hearings for Judge John Roberts and Judge Samuel Alito, a compilation of Senate Judiciary hearings on the nomination of Justice Antonin Scalia was shown. Justice Scalia’s testified for two days from August 5-6 of 1986.

Justice Scalia responded to questions from committee members about his views regarding such topics as federal-state relationships, the Constitution, death penalty, abortion, national security versus individual rights, original intent, independent agencies versus executive branch agencies, court disciplinary structure, legislative veto, bill history, economic deregulation, affirmative action, committee reports, and executive privilege.

Justice Scalia was named to fill the associate justice position vacated by the retirement of Chief Justice Warren Burger and subsequent re-nomination of William Rhenquist. close
