Scalia was on a hunting trip at Cibolo Creek Ranch outside of Marfa, Texas. He died in his sleep last night after a day of quail hunting. He was 79-years-old. He shared nothing about being sick and went to bed after dinner. Scalia was known as the longest-serving current Justice on the Supreme Court. President Ronald Reagan appointed him back in 1986.
Obama called Scalia, “larger than life presence on the bench.” He says that he will “fulfill constitutional duties” to replace Scalia and his justice position.
May his soul rest in peace.
