Scalia and Casey Martin

Here’s a good one from The Federalist about Scalia’s dissent in the Casey Martin case.

Martin was a disabled professional golfer who wanted to ride in a cart. The PGA rules say players must walk. The court ruled walking isn’t essential to golf and ordered the PGA to let Casey ride.

Scalia dissented. He said the rules of games are arbitrary. That’s what makes them games. He wanted to know where the court got off deciding which rules are essential?

Or something like that –  Scalia was wittier.

I drew this cartoon after the court ruled Bush beat Gore in the 2000 election.
