Justice Wealth

According to the Associated Press, many of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices are millionaires, but Justices Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy are not among them.  According to the annual financial disclosure, Clarence Thomas’ annual salary is $203,000.00 with a $25,000.00 supplement from a Drake University seminar and a teaching gig at the University of Georgia.  Kennedy added to his salary by $24,500.00 with a teaching position at the University of Pacific law school.

On the other side of the leger, Antonin Scalia has assets worth between $1.2 million and $2.8 million.  Justices David Souter and Ruth Bader Ginsburg have holdings that exceed $5 million and could go as high as $25 million.  Figures such as these may not be very relevant, but they are interesting nevertheless.
