Justice Antonin Scalia cause of death natural: funeral details, who will succeed

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death is being mourned by legal fraternity. Though more than anyone it is Republicans who are mourning his loss, others too are showering praise on him.

It is going to be very tough for the Republicans and Democrats to come to a unanimous choice that could take his place. There are many options, but it has been seen that the two parties don’t really agree on anything. And the 2016 being the election year, the animosity between the Democrats and Republican seems to be on its zenith.
In the meantime as Justice Antonin Scalia’s cause of death is concerned, judicial sources have said that he died of natural causes and no autopsy was necessary.

Born in the year 1936, Justice Scalia was appointed to the Court by President Ronald Reagan in 1986. He was described as the intellectual anchor for the originalist and textualist position in the Court’s conservative wing. In the early 1970s, he served in the Nixon and Ford administrations, eventually as an Assistant Attorney General. He spent most of the Carter years teaching at the University of Chicago, where he became one of the first faculty advisers of the fledgling Federalist Society. In 1982, Ronald Reagan appointed him as judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Scalia served on the Court for nearly thirty years, during which time he established a consistently conservative voting record and ideology, advocating textualism in statutory interpretation and originalism in constitutional interpretation.

In the meantime Chris Lujan, a manager for Sunset Funeral Homes in Texas, was quoted by the New York Times as saying that the 79-year-old jurist’s body was taken from the El Paso facility late Sunday afternoon and was to be flown to Virginia. The report says that the first Italian American jurist’s family didn’t think a private autopsy was necessary and requested that his remains be returned to Washington as soon as possible, Lujan said.

Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara told The Associated Press on Sunday she consulted with Scalia’s personal physician and sheriff’s investigators, who said there were no signs of foul play, before concluding that he had died of natural causes. He was found dead in his room at a West Texas resort ranch Saturday morning. Guevara says the declaration was made around 1:52 p.m. Saturday.

Terry Sharpe, assistant director for operations at El Paso International Airport, said a private plane carrying Scalia’s body departed around 8 p.m. EST Sunday. Scalia’s body was accompanied to the airport by U.S. marshals, he said. The body was returned to Virginia late Sunday.
