George Mason University can name law school for late Justice Scalia

LEXINGTON, Va. — George Mason University is free to rename its law school for the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia after a state council decided it had no oversight role in the matter.

The school announced plans to rename the school for Scalia back in March. The new name came in conjunction with a $20 million anonymous donor who conditioned the gift on the name change.

Opponents who objected to Scalia’s conservative legacy had wanted the State Council for Higher Education in Virginia to reject the name change. The council had been scheduled to vote on the matter Tuesday at a meeting in Lexington. But after receiving advice from the state attorney general’s office, the council instead adopted a resolution stating the name change can go forward without council approval.
