—At a conference, Antonin Scalia said, "Every single datum about my life is private? That's silly." This remark gave Fordham Law Professor Professor Joel Reidenberg the idea of having students compile a 15-page dossier on the U.S. Supreme Court justice using publicly available information. As Jonathan Turley writes: "For civil libertarians, Scalia's objections to a lack of privacy is analogous to Rep. Jane Harman's outrage over being intercepted as part of the NSA warrantless program that she helped approve."
—Erik Slye, a citizen of Montana, did not want to serve on a jury. He put his reasons, one of them anatomically specific, in a sworn statement. Above the Law.
