A harder heart than Scalia's

So a Supreme Court majority, led by Scalia, found Virginia's protection and advocacy office can sue state mental health officials for data on why, inter alia, two mental patients are perhaps unnecessarily dead. As Garrett Epps explains in The Atlantic, Roberts landed farther to the right, tastelessly comparing a state agency's suit against its parent entity to "patricide." When perhaps his concern might be better directed toward the quite literally dead people in the aforementioned state's overly private back wards. Ugh.
