Next time, Scalia won't recuse himself

Maybe he will and maybe he won't. But this very opinion will be used as an excuse to pressure Thomas to recuse himself.

I don't see it. A concurring opinion would force a justice to recuse himself from a subsequent case?

Writing dictum is not a valid grounds for recusal. Thomas won't be recusing himself.
