Justice Scalia, The Most Sarcastic Justice

Last year I wrote a piece for the Green Bag called “The Most Sarcastic Justice.”  Adam Liptak did a nice writeup about it in the NY Times, and Zach Goldfarb has highlights now at WaPo’s Wonkblog.  The article begins:

Justice Scalia is the most sarcastic justice on the Supreme Court. He has been for at least the last thirty years, and there is good reason to believe no other Justice in history has come close to his level of sarcasm. Now your first reaction to this claim, if you are a (sarcastic) Supreme Court aficionado or reader of the Green Bag (the two categories overlap almost perfectly), is probably: “Well, duh!” And your second reaction is likely: “Oh really? Well how can you prove that?”
