Antonin Scalia Dead - Supreme Court Justice Dies at 79

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has reportedly died at age 79.

The Justice died in his sleep on Friday night (February 12) during a trip to the Cibolo Creek Ranch near Marfa, Texas, according to a local ABC affiliate.

Scalia spent the day quail hunting and did not report feeling sick before going to bed. He was found dead in the morning when he did not show up for breakfast.

U.S. District Judge Fred Biery has spoken out about the death.

“I was told it was this morning,” Biery told mySA. “It happened on a ranch out near Marfa. As far as the details, I think it’s pretty vague right now as to how. My reaction is it’s very unfortunate. It’s unfortunate with any death, and politically in the presidential cycle we’re in, my educated guess is nothing will happen before the next president is elected.”

Scalia has been serving on the Supreme Court since 1986 when he was appointed by then President Ronald Reagan. He was the longest-serving current Justice until his death. We send out our thoughts and condolences to his loved ones during this difficult time.
