Scalia addresses Talmudic law group


NEW YORK (JTA) — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia addressed the Institute of American and Talmudic Law.

At an appearance Wednesday before the New York City group, associated with the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, Scalia discussed privacy rights in the digital age, The Associated Press reported. Scalia said  it was “silly” to consider every facet of a person’s life to be private.

Scalia told the group that he believes an individual’s personal Internet searches enjoy less privacy protection than medical records.

Also participating in the day-long event was prominent Washington attorney Nathan Lewin, who was Scalia’s classmate at Harvard Law School in the 1960s.
