Several Supreme Court justices will begin teaching law school classes on July 1 at exclusive European retreats, meaning that all the court's current term decisions–including the one on the constitutionality of the individual mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)–will be issued by June 30, if not earlier.

Associate Justices earn $213,900 a year and can supplement that with stipends of $10,000 to $20,000 with teaching gigs during the summer recess. Chief Justice John Roberts, who earns about $10,000 more than the associates do, will commence teaching on the island of Malta on July 1 for two law schools offering a joint program. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will teach in Vienna and Venice, while Justice Altonin Scalia will endure a retreat to the Tyrolean Alps for his teaching gig. Justice Samuel Alito will have to settle for Florence, Italy.
