Law60 turned to McGinnis Lochridge Partner Eric A. Johnston, for his first-hand experience meeting Justice Antonin Scalia.
"Justice Antonin Scalia was a monumental figure on the highest court in this country. I first experienced his ability to intimidate law students and lawyers during a question and answer session in law school. Justice Scalia was the first member of the judiciary that I ever met, and I was immediately terrified of the judiciary. Sitting in front of a room of 400+, he could recall minute details of cases time and time again. His devotion to textualism will last multiple generations through his beautifully crafted opinions and surgical precision during oral arguments. Justice Scalia's passing represents the loss of a beautiful legal mind."
