Justice Kagan says Scalia is game hunting partner

Oct 19, 2012, 8:28 PM

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Antonin Scalia are ideological opposites, yet they share a pastime. They like to hunt together.

Kagan amused an audience Friday at the University of Tennessee College of Law in Knoxville with stories of how the conservative Scalia taught her to shoot fowl.

She said Scalia told her in the spring, “It’s time to move on to the big game.”

She said the two will go hunting in Wyoming this weekend and she hopes to bag an antelope.

The Knoxville News Sentinel (
http://bit.ly/PGMX4m) reports that Kagan didn’t discuss politics or current cases during her appearance.

Kagan, who was nominated by President Barack Obama and joined the court in 2010, expressed thanks to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and former Justice Sandra Day O’Connor for blazing a trail for the women who followed them.
