When was the last time that Lysander Spooner was cited in a Supreme Court decision? (And probably the first time also.)
Would you believe – a little over a month ago? And by Antonin Scalia, of all people?
Check out this passage that Randy Barnett noticed. (Conical hat tip to Black Bloke.)
Being inclined to doubt that Scalia is a big Spooner fan, I wonder what law clerk slipped that in?
Yay! Recognition! ^_^
