Here Comes the Judge

Following on my earlier posts about how Lima, Peru, is a magnet for bands – and especially those groups from the 1980s – comes this latest news that the following acts will be performing in the City of Kings…

New Order (April 5);
The Cure (April 17); and
The Killers (April 4) (okay, not a band from the 1980s but still worthy of a mention)

One faction that you might not think of that would make the pilgrimage to this Andean country are justices of the United States Supreme Court. Yet, one of the nine robed members of the American judiciary is making the trek to Peru.

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia – on March 5 and 6 – is heading a conference entitled “Fronteras de la Justicia“. One of the panel discussions that will be held during this conference is called “International Law and National Sovereignty”. This is a topic in the Peruvian newspapers due to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) looking into a maritime border dispute between Peru and Chile (some – but not all – details can be found here).

By the way, this week will not be the first time Justice Scalia has come to Peru. He first made the trip in 2007.

No word if he went – or will go – to Machu Picchu so he can be added to this list of famous visitors.
