According to annual financial disclosures released Friday, Justice Clarence Thomas took in more than $300,000 in royalties last year for his autobiography -- far more than he earned as a member of the Supreme Court. In all, Thomas has made about $1.5 million from "My Grandfather's Son," the 2007 book that traces his rise to the Court from his roots in rural Georgia. Justice Antonin Scalia received nearly $100,000 last year for "Making Your Case," a book he recently co-authored on legal advocacy.
