David Souter is not usually known as a tech-head or an adventurous investor. But according to his 2002 financial disclosure form, the U.S. Supreme Court justice took a sizable leap into the high-tech investing arena. Last year, the form reveals, Souter bought between $100,001 and $250,000 of stock in Biznews24 Inc. The privately held company is a provider of Internet-based business communications � sales presentations, corporate Webcasts, training programs, and the like. How did Souter find out about the company? One clue is that it’s based in Bedford, New Hampshire, not far from where Souter spent his early career and still spends his summers. “I don’t know the justice too well,” says company president Jack Heath, but he adds that “mutual folks” introduced them. “I’m not a very high-tech person either,” says Heath, formerly a New Hampshire news broadcaster. He describes Souter as one of several “quality investors” who have backed the four-year-old firm, which he describes as a “good investment for him, I hope.” Financial disclosure forms from the justices, released in June, paint a picture of the Supreme Court as a prosperous group. According to an Associated Press tally, five of the nine justices could be counted as millionaires for their nonresidential assets: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sandra Day O’Connor, John Paul Stevens, and Souter.
