What Are the Supreme Court Justices Worth ($$$)?

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, most U.S Supreme Court Justices are are doing quite well financially.

 The median net worth of the nine current Supreme Court justices was between $1 million and $2.6 million in 2009, according to the Center's research. The median of the average net worths of the nine justices is $1.8 million. And the net worth of five of the court's nine justices is at least seven figures, the Center's research indicates.

Here is a table outlining the minimum net worth of the nine current justices of the Supreme Court, maximum net worth and mean net worth.
