The President today announced his intention to nominate Judge Antonin Scalia to be Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. He would succeed Associate Justice William H. Rehnquist upon Justice Rehnquist's confirmation as the next Chief Justice. Judge Scalia has been sitting on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 1982, when he was named to that court by President Reagan.

Prior to his appointment to the Court of Appeals, Judge Scalia was a law professor at the University of Chicago. He has also taught at Stanford, Georgetown, and the University of Virginia Law Schools. He was a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute in 1977. From 1974 to 1977, Judge Scalia served in the Department of Justice as Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel. Judge Scalia practiced law at Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue, Cleveland, OH, between 1960 and 1967; was General Counsel of the Office of Telecommunications Policy from 1971 to 1972; and between 1972 and 1974 served as chairman of the Administrative Conference of the United States. Judge Scalia was graduated from Harvard Law School in 1960 where he was note editor of the Harvard Law Review. He received his B.A., summa cum laude, from Georgetown University in 1957, graduating valedictorian and first in his class. During 1960-1961, he held a Sheldon fellowship awarded by Harvard University.

Judge Scalia is married to the former Maureen McCarthy, and they have nine children. Judge Scalia, whose father emigrated to the United States, was born on March 11, 1936, in Trenton, NJ.
