Would you like to spend some time in Geneva this summer? What about Lake Tahoe? Or is Rome more your flavor? Well, if you were Justice Antonin Scalia, you wouldn’t have to choose – you’d be heading to all three locales.
After the Supreme Court’s term wraps at the end of the month, Scalia his fellow jurists will be taking to the friendly skies to head to numerous cities within and outside of the United States, the AP reports. Justices are allowed to accept up to about $25,000 in additional income for teaching and speaking engagements, beyond their regular annual salaries of $213,900 (Chief Justice John G. Roberts earns $223,000).
Justice Stephen Breyer will have a particularly busy travel itinerary: a stint in Colorado to participate with Justice Elena Kagan (and possibly Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg) at the Aspen Institute; an visit to the American Bar Association convention in Toronto; an appearance at the Calvin Coolidge Center in Vermont; a high school dedication in Fargo, N.D.; and a private appearance to officiate the weeding of former Rep. Patrick Kennedy on Cape Cod.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s travel plans are unknown, as are those of Justice Clarence Thomas – though he and his wife Ginni usually take to the open road in their RV, so keep an eye out and you may see them in the parking lot of your local Wal-Mart.
