From Ariane de Vogue:

Last week, in an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Supreme Court Justice Breyer ruffled some feathers in the legal community  when he suggested that he wasn't prepared to conclude that in the Internet age the First Amendment condemns Koran burning.

On Friday, Justice Scalia weighed in, according to the Bay City News.  Scalia told an audience the action would be protected by the First Amendment right of free speech "unless it is going to immediately cause a riot the police can't deal with."

"It may be a very bad idea, but a lot of stupid stuff is perfectly constitutional," he said.
