5 Facts About Justice Antonin Scalia (1936-2016)

"U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has died at the age of 79. He reportedly died in his sleep during a visit to Texas." Acton

Major Loss

His death is a major loss for the Supreme Court. If you haven't read his dissenting opinion in last years's homosexual marriage case, you should. The President has the Constitutional right to nominate SC justices, and the Senate has the Constitutional right for "Advice and Consent". If the current President were a Republican, then Republicans would insist on his right to nominate a replacement. So let the process (Constitutional and political) work itself out and see what happens.

The document

If you want to read Scailia's dissent in the Obergefell case ("gay marriage") the official SCOTUS document is here:

http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/14pdf/14-556_3204.pdf

(To get to the dissents, you have to page/scroll past the "court opinion" to the Appendix.... Roberts' dissent is first, then Scalia's, followed by Thomas and then Alito. The page numbering restarts with each dissent.)
