Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Lou Barletta, PA-11, today released the following statement regarding the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:

“I am saddened by the loss of Antonin Scalia, one of the great conservative legal minds this nation has ever produced.  As the first Italian-American member of the high court, and also a Catholic, he was a strong role model for countless others like me in this country.  He was a strong family man, married to his wife Maureen since 1960, and the father of nine children.  Showing his trademark wit, he often joked that he was comfortable on the court because he was experienced in working with groups of nine.  His voice and legal acumen will long be missed.  May he rest in peace.”
