March 29 (UPI) -- Even Supreme Court justices are susceptible to credit-card fraud.

The Washington Post's Al Kamen reported Thursday that Chief Justice John Roberts was spotted using cash to buy his usual morning coffee at a Starbucks in suburban Maryland. He usually charges the pick-me-up drink, but had to cancel his credit card after someone stole his account information.

The Huffington Post confirmed the report. An employee apparently overheard Roberts say that the suspect used his card in Kentucky.



According to the Daily Mail, 10 percent of Americans have been victims of credit-card fraud.

But Roberts undoubtedly had his hands full with other matters this week. The Supreme Court heard oral arguments over Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act. The justices are expected to hand down their decisions in June.
