While we're on the subject of Scalia, one of his favorite gripes has to do with U.S. Courts citing foreign laws and legal decisions. This is an issue that has been popular with the far-right in this country for a while, and has bubbled up again recently following a speech Justice Ginsburg gave in South Africa in February.
Far-right conspiracy theorists see the citing of foreign law as the U.S. "outsourcing American law". The fact of the matter, though, is that this is really a non-issue.
