Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died Saturday while vacationing at the exclusive Cibolo Creek Ranch in west Texas. According to the Washington Post, Scalia’s trip to the hunting ranch was an all-inclusive gift from the ranch’s owner, who reportedly received a favorable result on a Supreme Court hearing on age discrimination last year.

The Cibolo Creek Ranch is in Shafter, a Texas town just 30 miles from the Mexican border and is owned by John  Poindexter, who also owns a Houston-based manufacturing firm named J.B. Poindexter & Co.

Last year, The Mic Group, a subsidiary of J.B. Poindexter, was named in an age discrimination suit. When the suit reached the Supreme Court on an appeal by the plaintiff, the Court declined to listen to the case, ending the suit in Poindexter’s favor.

In the wake of Scalia’s death, Poindexter confirmed that the Justice was invited as a guest. An insider who is familiar with the ranch’s operations said that the ranch has events two to three times a year, where friends and associates of Poindexter are welcomed onto the ranch for an all-inclusive vacation.

“I did not pay for the Justice’s trip to Cibolo Creek Ranch. He was an invited guest, along with a friend, just like 35 others,” said Poindexter in an email to the Washington Post. “The Justice was treated no differently by me, as no one was charged for activities, room and board, beverages, etc. That is a 22-year policy.’’

Although Poindexter said that Scalia’s trip was a tradition offered to friends and colleagues at the ranch, its close proximity to Poindexter’s favorable Supreme Court decision makes the free stay instantly suspicious.

    perhaps they should investigate Poindexter for the death of Scalia and stop blaming it on the President and isn’t the fact he was a friend of Scalia, would not a intelligent person see a huge conflict of interest in that case favoring this man ?

    Oh wait–this just in from Texas!
    Scalia’s Last Conversation
    Poindexter: Buddy, I hope you’re not going to overrule the president on this immigration deal. The last thing I need is for ICE to swoop down on this ranch and take all my employees away.
    Scalia: Well, that would be unfortunate, John, but I’m not inclined to see this issue as the president does.
    Poindexter: Oh my, that’s disappointing. Sure I can’t change your mind on this?
    Scalia: Absolutely not. My decisions are guided by strict constitutional principles.
    Poindexter: Well, I had to try — you have a nice sleep.
