Chief Justice John Roberts joked Friday that he'll head to an "impregnable island fortress" now that the Supreme Court has wrapped up its session.
His remarks come a day after the he delivered the decisive vote to uphold President Obama's signature healthcare law. He was the swing vote in the case.
Roberts was appearing on a panel at a judicial conference in Pennsylvania on Friday, and Chief Judge David Sentelle of the D.C. District Court asked if he planned to head "to Disney World" now that the court had adjourned.
The Chief Justice explained that, in fact, he planned to teach a class for two weeks in Malta, the isolated island nation just south of Italy.
