    Justice Antonin Scalia passed away on Saturday at 79-years-old in his hotel room in Texas. Scalia's doctor said he had a history of high blood pressure. Speaking of pressure, It may seem like a lot for Obama to fill the seat but this is actually not the first time a Supreme Court Justice has died in office. According to the Congressional Research Service, 41% of the Supreme Court vacancies that occurred in the beginning of the 20th century were a result of a justice passing away.
