“Justice Antonin Scalia was nominated to the Supreme Court...

"Justice Antonin Scalia was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1986, and his legal theories, vivid writing and outsize personality made him a conservative leader during his tenure that spanned almost 3 decades. This Saturday, the conservative justice was found dead, at 79, on a West Texas resort. Justice Scalia will be remembered not only as a champion of originalism — the theory of constitutional interpretation that seeks to apply the understanding of those who drafted and ratified the Constitution — but also for taking no prisoners in his caustic dissents. Here, the photographer @zachgibson5 offers a rare look inside the courtroom of the Supreme Court, where black drapes can be seen hanging over Justice Scalia's chair." By nytimes on Instagram.
