Access online the audio of Justice Antonin Scalia's recent remarks in Italy:
When speaking to groups in the United States, Justice Scalia only rarely allows the audio of his remarks to be recorded
and posted online. But in Italy, apparently all bets are off.
On Tuesday, Michelle Olsen at her fine Appellate Daily Twitter feed furnished a link to a web page that was then providing access to download the mp3 audio of Justice Scalia's remarks. Yesterday, however, Michelle noted that the link to the audio of Justice Scalia's remarks at that web page had disappeared. Nevertheless, the audio file itself remained available for download from the server for those who possessed the original download link.
Today, Michelle has not only posted the audio of Justice Scalia's remarks to SoundCloud, but she has also located online another place where the audio of Justice Scalia's remarks remains available for download (70.7 MB mp3 audio file).

One could say this about many a Posner opinion:
Concurring in an opinion
of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit
that Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner
issued today, Senior Circuit Judge William J. Bauer
writes, "I have to admit that this opinion had me in suspense until the last minute."
Judge Bauer also observes that "I'm not sure [the opinion of the court] provides a clear trail for [the] future," which is surely another thing that many have remarked about prior Judge Posner opinions. Nevertheless, they usually make for a very interesting read.
