Scalia addresses Talmudic law group

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia addressed the Institute of American and Talmudic Law.

At an appearance Wednesday before the New York City group, associated with the Chabad-Lubavitch movement, Scalia discussed privacy rights in the digital age, The Associated Press reported. Scalia said it was “silly” to consider every facet of a person's life to be private.

Scalia told the group that he believes an individual's personal Internet searches enjoy less privacy protection than medical records.

Also participating in the day-long event was prominent Washington attorney Nathan Lewin, who was Scalia's classmate at Harvard Law School in the 1960s.
