The Associated Press reports:

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan says her colleague Antonin Scalia deserves a lot of credit for getting the high court to divine what laws mean by focusing on the words Congress used.

Kagan says the art of interpreting statutes has changed for the better in the past 30 years, largely because of Scalia.

The liberal Kagan says the conservative Scalia will go down in history for his insistence that justices look more to the words of a law than they used to.
