The San Antonio Express reports Senior U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia found dead at West Texas ranch "According to a report, Scalia arrived at the ranch on Friday and attended a private party with about 40 people. When he did not appear for breakfast, a person associated with the ranch went to his room and found a body."
Condolences to his family. The political ramifications are going to be interesting.
He would have turned 80 next month. He is the 15th longest serving Justice.
Worth reading up on the Thurmond Rule (named for racist) because people are going to bring it up.
I wonder if Justice Thomas will start asking questions at oral arguments.
