Justice Scalia's Passing a Sad Day

By Jay Sekulow1455406794004

We are deeply saddened by the news the Associate Justice Antonin Scalia has passed away.

The news broke late this afternoon that the 79-year-old Supreme Court Justice died in his sleep while on a hunting trip in Texas.

This is a sad day for our nation as we mourn the loss of one of the country's most brilliant and ardent supporters of the Constitution.

I had the honor and privilege of knowing Justice Scalia for the more than 25 years that I have practiced before the court. Justice Scalia had a keen understanding of what our Founding Fathers intended and dedicated his life to carrying out the rule of law. Justice Scalia will be deeply missed by so many who understood and respected his passion for justice and the rule of law.

Justice Scalia was the longest serving of the current sitting justices, having taken his seat on the high Court in 1986.  Prior to his appointment to the Supreme Court by President Reagan, Justice Scalia served as a law professor, an assistant attorney general in the Justice Department, and a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

His conservative jurisprudential legacy will be long remembered and his passion for the Constitution should not be forgotten.
