Mourning The Death Of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia

//////////////////////

At TFAS, we join our fellow Americans in mourning the death of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia on Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016.

Justice Scalia was a friend to TFAS, regularly hosting discussions at the U.S. Supreme Court for the law students attending our Legal Studies Institute (LSI). Professors Randy Barnett and John Baker made the arrangements each summer. They assigned decisions by Justice Scalia for our students to read, so they could go to the meetings fully-prepared to engage in a lively discussion of ‘originalism.’

Justice Scalia also hosted TFAS donors at the Supreme Court several times in the recent past. He was generous to us with his valuable time and for that we will always be grateful.

I last saw Justice Scalia in 2015 at the funeral for one of our esteemed professors, Walter Berns. He and Chief Justice John Roberts were there to pay their respects to this great constitutional scholar. I wasn’t surprised to see him there, knowing he and Professor Berns shared a love for our Constitution and an understanding that this document is the source of American exceptionalism and prosperity.

Always generous with his time, Justice Scalia hosted TFAS supporters at the Supreme Court last June where he spent an hour speaking and answering attendees’ questions.

All of us at TFAS extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of Justice Scalia. May he rest in peace.
