U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's memorial service on Saturday provided a brief respite for official Washington from the fierce battle over his succession, with political and legal leaders and many others in attendance. At the blue-domed Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the nation's largest Catholic church, dozens of priests took part in the funeral mass, led by one of the justice's nine children, Reverend Paul Scalia. More than 3,000 people looked on, including other family members, the court's remaining eight justices, lawmakers, Vice President Joseph Biden and former Vice President Dick Cheney.
