SCOTUSBlog, and other outlets, report that Justice Kennedy was present during the memorial in Tucson, Arizona this evening. The memorial began around 8:30 p.m. EST. Oral arguments in Kentucky v. King concluded at 11:58 a.m. How the heck did he get to Tucson that quickly? I did a quick search on Expedia, and I can’t seem to find any flights at IAD, DCA, or BWI that could have conceivably gotten him there in that short period of time. He must’ve flown on a private jet. Nice perk for a Justice. Justice O’Connor was also at the memorial. Maybe they hitched a ride together? Remember the time Justice Scalia hitched a ride with VP Cheney?
Update: The NY TImes reports that AMK was on Air Force One. That settles that.
