The income for an appellate justice is significant compared to most of us, but pales in comparison to what a similarly accomplished attorney would make in the private sector. It's also worth noting that those salaries have been pretty stagnant for decades.

His wife does work as what is essentially a "city manager" position for their community (~250 homes IIRC) and used to be a personal assistant to President Bush.

I don't see anything objectionable about this (we should focus on his rulings). They neither appear to be living beyond their means nor accumulating the insane amounts of wealth that those in positions of power often seem to attract.
