Our Times Square headquarters was the venue for a Newsmaker event on September 17 featuring Justice Antonin Scalia and Professor Bryan A. Garner in a lively discussion about their new book, Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts.
Before a packed room of law students, customers and Thomson Reuters professionals, the conversation, moderated by Reuters News Editor-in-Chief Stephen Adler, explored a host of topics on modern judicial decision-making and principles of U.S. constitutional, statutory and contractual interpretation with frequent applause – and laughter – from the audience.
In his welcoming remarks, Mike Suchsland, President, Legal, introduced Justice Scalia as a “jurist who is known for his entertaining style and his colorful analogies” and the judge did not fail to engage the crowd.

His co-author, Professor Garner, whom Mike introduced as a “renowned legal scholar who also happens to edit the best-selling legal publication in history, Black’s Law Dictionary,” was equally eloquent and erudite throughout the interview and subsequent questions from the audience.
