you'll be in the know, wherever you are. his sleep last night texas. the 79-year-old was a leading conservative voice on the high court. but as joe johnson reports, scalia was also did off the bench. natsot: "i antonin scalia do solemnly swear..." the first italian- american to sit on the nation's highest court, justice antonin scalia was a conservative in thought, but not in personality: antonin gregory scalia
elmhurst neighborhood of new york city-- the only child of a sicilian- born college professor and a school-teacher mother. they instilled in the precocious child a love of words and debate: : "i was somewhat of a greasy grind i have to say. i studied real hard." he was a top student at public and private catholic schools in the city. scalia's interest in law began in college and so too an interest in maureen mccarthy, whom he later married and had nine children with. his exuberant embrace of conservatism attracted the attention of republicans -- and president reagan ultimately named the 50-year-old federal judge to the high court in 1986: there he quickly developed a reputation as a reliable conservative. and his own style helped liven the public face of the high court: : "some of the other justices, including justices who had been on the court for a while, were kinda: if the new guy gets to
all these question, i'm going to step up and ask some questions too." on abortion, the death penalty, affirmative action, homosexual rights-- scalia clashed early-- and often-- with more moderate or left- leaning benchmates: : "if he was trying to get anybody to sign an opinion, it was harder when he would use more combative language. but as much as they would say i'd like to strangle nino, he was still theirs in many ways." and those dissents helped him hone a creative-- some said often cruel-- streak in his writings, becoming a master stylist. he once referred to the "junior varsity congress." he quoted cole porter, shakespeare, and sesame street songs. off the bench, came admiration from young conservatives who wrote books and created websites in tribute. but controversy too: a hunting trip with vice president cheney at the same time the court was considering a lawsuit against the number-two over access to privileged documents. a sicilian gesture some interpreted as "obscene"-- and captured by a boston newspaper-- he called it "dismissive" in nature. justice scalia-- a man both respected and dismissed, feared and celebrated.
ways. certainly this larger-than- life figure, a larger-than-bench figure, someone who embraced both the law and a life beyond the court." a judge with street smarts and a well- calculated conservative view of the law and its limits on society: : "i'm not driven. i enjoy what i'm doing and as soon as i no longer enjoy it, i am outta there." joe johns, washington. chief justice john roberts said in a statement the high court is saddened by scalia's passing. roberts also said scalia was an extraordinary man and jurist... and his death is a great loss for the nation. ben ross is here now with a preview of
