I found this story on the blog Just a Bump in the Beltway
Justice Scalia gave a keynote speech last year in Philadelphia to a group - the Urban Family Council - that was engaged in a legal battle against gay rights.
The original article is in today's (March 8) Boston Globe.
Scalia's talk to antigay group spurs ethics questions
By Richard A. Serrano and David G. Savage, Los Angeles Times
Scalia addressed the $150-a-plate dinner hosted by the Urban Family Council two months after hearing oral arguments in a challenge to a Texas law that made sex between gays a crime. A month after the dinner, he sharply dissented from the high court's decision overturning the Texas law.
Some specialists in legal ethics said they saw no problem in Scalia's appearance before the group. But others say he should not have accepted the invitation because it calls into question his impartiality on an issue that looms increasingly large on the nation's legal agenda.
