Judge Sandra Ikuta, who was on President-elect Trump’s list as a possible U.S. Supreme Court nominee, moderated a discussion on using legislative history in deciding cases. In 1986 Justice Scalia changed the prevailing Court view to favoring the original intentions of the framers of the Constitution rather than the original public meaning of the text of the laws Congress wrote, arguing that the courts must follow the laws that Congress makes rather than the legislative history that accompanies them.

Justice Scalia: Text Over Intent and the Demise of Legislative History” was the first showcase panel of the Federalist Society’s 2016 annual National Lawyers Convention on the theme “The Jurisprudence and Legacy of Justice Scalia.” close
