PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Even if you’re a member of the country’s highest court, run afoul of the Philadelphia Parking Authority and you’ll find a ticket on your windshield.

Just ask U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

The National Constitution Center reports on its “Constitution Daily” blog that Scalia was in town Monday for an appearance at the Union League, a tony private club downtown.

Scalia’s car was ticketed despite a Philadelphia official police business placard on its dashboard.

The Constitution Center post jokes that although Scalia is among the court’s conservative judges, the ticket is nonpartisan. The Parking Authority is one of the few Republican-dominated institutions in Philadelphia, a city long controlled by Democrats.

It wasn’t clear what kind of parking regulation the car was found to be violating.
