Antonin Scalia, the longest serving judge on the U.S. Supreme Court, passed away Saturday after a day of quail hunting at a luxury resort in Texas.
The 79-year-old was not feeling well after dinner on Friday night. His body was found Saturday morning. He apparently died of natural causes.
Scalia was appointed by Ronald Reagan in 1986. Several Republicans have already indicated that they would not allow Obama to fill Scalia´s vacant seat.
