Three justices skip State of the Union

Three years ago, Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. famously shook his head and mouthed the words “not true” during President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address in response to Obama’s admonition of the justice’s decision in Citizens United. And Alito has not since been seen in the House chamber during the president’s annual address.

Alito was one of three justices to skip the event last night: Justices Antonin G. Scalia and Clarence Thomas were absent as well.
