The official car of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia got a parking ticket in Philadelphia on Monday while the justice was giving a talk about his latest book.

The Philadelphia Parking Authority, which is featured in the cable show “Parking Wars,” ticketed two Supreme Court cars for parking in a loading zone outside the fabled Union League, where Jusice Scalia was visiting. He was there to talk to the local Federalist Society about his book Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts.


Although Philadelphia’s City Hall is dominated by Democrats, the parking authority is actually a patronage haven for the city’s Republican Party.

The tickets were for $31 each. A spokeswoman for the Supreme Court confirmed that the ticket was issued to a vehicle driven by a Supreme Court police officer.
