SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will be in South Dakota this winter to speak at Augustana University.

Scalia will give an address titled “Whether the U.S. Constitution is a Living Document” on March 9 at the university in Sioux Falls.

The speech is part of the school’s Boe Forum on Public Affairs. Past speakers include former President George H.W. Bush, former Vice President Al Gore, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Queen Noor of Jordan and former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

Scalia, a conservative jurist, joined the court in 1986. He is the longest-serving justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. He considers himself a “textualist” who applies the words in the Constitution as they were understood by the founding fathers.
