Supreme Court hasn't really 'gotten to' email, but that won't stop them from ruling on technology cases

Supreme Court justice Elena Kagan says justices on the nation's highest court send messages to each other "through memos printed on ivory paper," and do not use email, Facebook, or Twitter.

Kagan was speaking at a public event in conversation with historian and librarian Ted Widmer of Providence's Brown University.

"The justices are not necessarily the most technologically sophisticated people," AP quotes her as saying. Their young clerks use email, but "The court hasn't really 'gotten to' email."

At 53, she is the youngest and most recently appointed to the court.

Members of the court "write memos printed out on paper that looks like it came from the 19th century," and those memos are walked around the building by a "chambers aide."
