Most Justices Earned Money on the Side

"All but one of the nine high court justices earned teaching income or book royalties in 2013, hauling in a quarter of a million dollars for their work shaping young legal minds in the classroom or through the written word," the Center for Public Integrity found.

"Top earner Justice Antonin Scalia raked in more than $100,000 in book royalties for his 2012 tome Reading Law: Interpretation of Legal Texts and teaching wages from Southern Methodist University, Duke University, Tufts University and Pennsylvania State University... Justice Sonia Sotomayor did not report any outside income in 2013, despite the recent success of her memoir, My Beloved World, for which she received $1.9 million in advances from her publisher Knopf Doubleday in 2012."
