Justice Scalia’s Papers Given to Harvard Law School

Since this is a topic that I’ve posted about before, I wanted to note that Justice Scalia’s family announced yesterday that his papers will be given to Harvard Law School.  None of his Supreme Court papers will be opened until all of the colleagues that he served with have died, so it will be some time before anything significant becomes available.

    “Materials pertaining to Justice Scalia’s work on the Supreme Court and the D.C. Circuit Court will begin to be opened for research in 2020, although materials regarding specific cases will not be opened during the lifetime of other Justices or judges who participated in the case. ”

    So, some use appears to be possible here. As to specific cases, yes, there is a wait. Not to be morbid, but his early cases might be available not THAT long from now given the ages of Stevens and O’Connor. Not sure about his DC Circuit opinions though I know multiple colleagues are still with us.
