Now before you start to say Scalia is often accused of not knowing when to stop, I must say (as someone who drives the same route each day) that cars can stop suddenly on GW Parkway.
Scalia’s BMW had to be towed from the south lane approaching Roosevelt Bridge after he rear-ended a car that was stopped due to traffic.
He is looking at a fine of $70, plus a $20 special assessment.
Worse yet, I was caught in the resulting traffic on my way from McLean to work. Had I known I would have yelled, “Hey, Buddy, you drive like George Mason!”
It turns out “justice delayed was [not] justice denied.” Scalia made the Walmart argument and promptly complained that “I’m getting whipsawed here” in questions with counsel. I expect that was a reference to events a bit before the argument.
