WASHINGTON (AP) -- Justice Antonin Scalia’s courtroom chair on Tuesday was draped in black to mark his death as part of a Supreme Court tradition that dates to the 19th century.
Scalia died Saturday at age 79. He joined the court in 1986 and was its longest-serving justice.
He sat to the right of Chief Justice John Roberts, the seat given to the senior justice.
The entrance to the marble courtroom and the mahogany bench in front of Scalia’s chair also have been draped with black wool crepe.
