A Supreme Millionaire's Club

Just two of the nine Supreme Court justices, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy, list their assets as worth less than $1 million, while the court's only woman and only bachelor are its wealthiest members. Legal Times' reporter Tony Mauro has reviewed the justices' 2005 financial disclosure forms and found A Millionaire Club of High Court Justices.

The forms require reporting only within ranges of value, making precise totals impossible to calculate, Mauro writes, but Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appears to be the wealthiest, reporting assets of between $6.4 million and $28 million. Justice David Souter is close behind her, with assets of between $5.6 million and $26.3 million. Kennedy is the "poorest" of the lot, with assets valued at between $65,005 and $195,000.
