BISMARCK – Gov. Jack Dalrymple on Thursday directed state government agencies and encouraged North Dakotans to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff as a mark of respect for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and Fargo Police Officer Jason Moszer.

The flags will be lowered on the day of their funerals.

Dalrymple is directing flags to be lowered Saturday from sunrise to sunset to honor Scalia for his decades of service as a member of America’s highest court. Scalia passed away this past weekend at a Texas hunting lodge.

Flags will be lowered on Monday from sunrise to sunset to honor Moszer for his years of service to the city of Fargo and dedication to serving and protecting others. Moszer was killed in the line of duty last week while responding to a domestic dispute.
