Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Says She and Antonin Scalia Were 'Best Buddies'

In a statement on Sunday, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg discussed her friendship with Antonin Scalia by saying, "From our years together at the D.C. Circuit, we were best buddies. We disagreed now and then, but when I wrote for the Court and received a Scalia dissent, the opinion ultimately released was notably better than my initial circulation. Justice Scalia nailed all the weak spots—the 'applesauce' and 'argle bargle'—and gave me just what I needed to strengthen the majority opinion."

She also noted that Scalia, who died of an apparent heart attack in Texas, was a jurist of "captivating brilliance and wit," adding that he could make even the "most sober judge laugh."

In addition, Chief Justice Roberts said, "He was an extraordinary individual and jurist, admired and treasured by his colleagues." Justice Anthony Kennedy added that Scalia had the "highest ethical and moral standards."

Justice Sonia Sotomayor stated, "My colleague Nino Scalia was devoted to his family, friends, our Court, and our country. He left an indelible mark on our history. I will miss him and the dimming of his special light is a great loss for me."
