Senior U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia found dead at West Texas ranch

Gary Martin reported at the San Antonio-Express News.

P.S. Justice Rehnquist was the keynote speaker at the February 23, 2006 Milwaukee conference on 'The Legacy of the Rehnquist Court' presented by the Federalist Society Federalism & Separation of Powers Practice Group.

Kyle Balluck reports at The Hill,

"Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders late Saturday called conservative Justice Antonin Scalia a 'brilliant, colorful and outspoken' member of the Supreme Court.

"'While I differed with Justice Scalia’s views and jurisprudence, he was a brilliant, colorful and outspoken member of the Supreme Court,' the Vermont senator said in a brief statement.

"'My thoughts and prayers are with his family and his colleagues on the court who mourn his passing,' he added."

Also: Before an appearance at Marquette Law School, Justice Scalia mentioned that he had misplaced his pocket copy of the U.S. Constitution. He took me up on my offer to loan him mine, and repaid the favor with an autograph.
