Speaking at the University of Arizona College of Law, Justice Antonin Scalia told the audience that under his "originalist" philosophy he would have voted to end segregation.


Earlier reports said that Scalia would have voted to keep segregation which were wrong.

According to the blog Blakinization:

As I suspected, Justice Scalia did not say he would have dissented in Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. The newspaper account is incorrect and took his remarks out of context. The author of the article, Howard Fischer of Capitol Media Services, owes Justice Scalia an apology.

And I apologize for quoting this incorrect article in my original post.
