antonin-scaliaEL PASO, TX - An El Paso source close to Justice Antonin Scalia has told the ABC affiliate TV Channel 7 here that the 79-year-old U.S. Supreme Court Justice died in his sleep last night after a day of quail hunting at Cibolo Creek Ranch outside of Marfa, Texas.

The Justice did not report feeling ill and retired to his room after dinner. The source, who was traveling with Scalia, told ABC-7 an El Paso priest has been called to Marfa.

Scalia was the longest-serving current Justice on the Supreme Court. He was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1986. He was well known for being part of the ultra conservative block on the court.
