Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who makes no secret of his disdain for the news media, has agreed to appear in a segment of CBS News’ “60 Minutes” on April 27, the eve of the publication of a new book co-authored by the justice. A knowledgeable source who requested anonymity confirmed last week that the TV newsmagazine asked Scalia for the interview, and he accepted despite his oft-stated view that judges should stand apart from the modern media culture. Correspondent Lesley Stahl has already conducted several taped interviews with Scalia that range well beyond his book — called Making Your Case: The Art of Persuading Judges — and delve into his career and upbringing. The “60 Minutes” appearance is the centerpiece of a limited round of publicity Scalia will do to promote sales of the book he wrote with Bryan Garner, the legal writing expert whose company, LawProse Inc., runs seminars for law firms around the country. The 72-year-old Scalia may also have felt that, at this stage in his life, the time has come to unburden himself and tell his story on a stage broader than the Supreme Court.
