EXTRA CASH - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch landed a tidy $225,000 advance last year for his forthcoming book “A Republic, If You Can Keep It.” That financial information, among other juicy tidbits, can be found in the justices’ financial disclosure statements released Thursday. Marcia Coyle reports that Justice Sonia Sotomayor in 2018 received royalties totaling $33,000. Justice Stephen Breyer, another regular book author, received $4,415.69, and Justice Samuel Alito reported receiving $20,250 total for teaching at Duke University School of Law in January and in June. Justice Clarence Thomas reported earning $28,000 in income from teaching at the University of Kansas School of Law; George Washington University School of Law; and the Georgia University School of Law.
