In 1979 he became substitute attorney in the Agrigento Court, role covered until 1989, when he was nominated side-judge . He was murdered on September 21, 1990, along the road SS 640 between Agrigento and Caltanissetta, when he was travelling, without any body guard, to the Court Hall, by four killers, who were paid by the "Stidda" of Agrigento, a criminal organization somewhat in contrast and/or cooperation with the most famous Cosa Nostra.
During his activity, Livatino took in his hands the affair of "Tangentopoli siciliana" (The circuit of politician corruption and state works, that implied an enormous amount of money), and he managed to inflict a great damage to mafia affairs, with many mob arrested and the seizure of big mafia propierties as mansions and lands.
Pope John Paul II said that Rosario Livatino was a Martyr of Justice and in an indirect way, of the Christian Faith.
