LAW: Race and Gender Gaps in Wealth of Supreme Court Justices

Following on the heels of the crisis in hiring of female Supreme Court clerks in the 2006-07 Term, a new report raises troubling questions about race and gender equity in the wealth of Supreme Court Justices. (H/T WSJ Law Blog). Apparently, on average, African-American Justices have between 4% and 5.8% as much wealth as white Justices. There's also a significant gender gap: female Justices have between 3 1/2 and 4 times as much wealth as male Justices. Clearly, this is a disturbing trend requiring investigation by the media and Congress and perhaps remedial legislation.
