It's surprising Sotomayor's net worth is that low, considering the fact that she is single with no dependents. She must live a very wasteful lifestyle.

Scalia and Alito's net worth are both amazingly high for men that have put so many children through college. They must REALLY be frugal.

Watch Robert's net worth dip as his kids start entering college!

Of course, this calculation of net worth does not include the discounted value of a lifetime guaranteed income stream of ~$215,000/year. I think that Justice Sotomayor's true net worth is substantial in the black.

Judge Judy makes more money than the whole bunch of them put together. She has an annual salary of $45 million.
