The death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia raises crucial questions for the court. At one justice short, what happens to cases that have been decided but not yet announced, and those yet to be considered? Will the court simply split on ideological lines, or are some justices open to negotiation so key matters can be decided? Dahlia Lithwick of Slate discusses this with Here & Now's Robin Young.
