Some of the analogies were helpful, some less so, but each one provided an insight into that particular Justice's thinking on the issue. Can you match the analogy with the Justice? (Hint: Two are from Justice Scalia)

Answers: A: Justice Scalia. B: Justice Breyer. C: Justice Sotomayor. D: Chief Justice Roberts. E: Justice Scalia.
