U.S. Supreme Court

Why Chief Justice Roberts couldn't use his credit card at Starbucks

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. had to change his morning routine when he stopped by a Starbucks in suburban Maryland on Tuesday, the day of oral arguments on California’s ban on gay marriage.

Roberts paid in cash, explaining that he had to cancel his credit card after someone got hold of his credit card number, the Washington Post reports at its In the Loop blog.

A Supreme Court spokeswoman confirmed that Roberts was a victim of credit card fraud, the Associated Press reports.
