The U.S. Supreme Court's biggest decisions of the term will be coming later this month, including rulings on immigration, nudity on television and, of course, health care. But then the court takes its three-month summer recess, and the justices will be scattering to the winds.

Europe will be a popular destination, with several justices teaching at the summer programs of U.S. law schools. Chief Justice John Roberts will be in the tiny Mediterranean nation of Malta, teaching a class for the Consortium for Innovative Legal Education. Justice Antonin Scalia will teach at St. Mary's University School of Law in Innsbruck, Austria. Justice Samuel Alito will be the guest instructor for Penn State's Dickinson School of Law in Florence, Italy. And Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will teach in both Venice, Italy and Vienna, Austria for Wake Forest University School of Law.

Back stateside, Justice Roberts and his family will probably spend some time in Maine, where they have a vacation home. And every summer Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Virginia take to the road in an RV, sometimes spending the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

As a bonus, you may also see one or more of the justices trade their robes for jerseys, tossing out the first pitch at major league ballparks. It'll be a nice change of pace from the other nine months of year, when they serve as umpires.
