Wine and Cowboy Boots for Justice Scalia!

A rather scroogish December 31st article in the Los Angeles Times (free registration req'd.) mainly discusses some $40,000 worth of gifts received by Justice Thomas, but also mentions some gifts given to Nino. The LA Times writes that between 1998 and 2003, Scalia accepted $1275.00 worth of gifts, which included, among others, cases of wine from an unnamed Virginia winery and a pair of cowboy boots from the Tarrant County, Texas, Bar Association. Really just peanuts when compared to the $5000 + gifts received by Rehnquist and O'Connor during the same period.

While the LA Times admits that a federal judge can ethically receive a gift (provided the giver is not before the court), the article still discusses the 2004 controversy over Nino's duck hunting junket with V.P. Cheney.
