Supreme Court Justice Scalia (Harvard Law, 1960) sat on a three-judge panel hearing the fictitious case of Fletcher v. Hermann.

The mock appellate hearing was based in part on a real Washington, DC case in which a libel suit was brought against a columnist by a

Marxist college professor who claimed an article by the columnist was

false and defamatory and cost him an appointment to chair his

school’s political science department. close
