Scalia *Heart* Tennis

Maybe he didn't get his invitation? Scalia was playing tennis with the Federalists during the swearing-in of Chief Justice Roberts. Well, it was at the tony Ritz-Carlton in Bachelor Gulch, Colorado - how could he resist?
Scalia spent two nights at the luxury resort lecturing at the legal seminar where ABC News also found him on the tennis court, heading out for a fly-fishing expedition, and socializing with members of the Federalist Society, the conservative activist group that paid for the expenses of his trip.

At a press conference, almost two weeks later, Scalia was not inclined to tell reporters his whereabouts during Roberts' swearing-in.

"I was out of town with a commitment that I could not break, and that's what the public information office told you," he said.

It "doesn't matter what it was. It was a commitment that I couldn't break," Scalia continued when questioned further.

Just because I can - I'm linking to the registration form for this event.

I'm sure Scalia was pissed that he wasn't named Chief Justice. And who wouldn't rather play tennis at a fancy resort than go to a boring swearing-in ceremony for the new boss? :)

Good to know that some of our Supreme Court justices share those strong Republican ethics.
