DALLAS (AP) — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito says trying to get in questions as his colleagues are grilling lawyers is like trying to grab an item on sale at Walmart — both are difficult.

Alito addressed the State Bar of Texas on Thursday in Dallas. His speech was called, "Ten Things People May Not Know About the Supreme Court."

Alito arrives in Dallas with several key decisions from the current court term still unannounced. One case involves the University of Texas' use of race in admissions.

Alito joked that the court had about 10 opinions left to announce — but those weren't going to be the things he discussed.

Instead, he talked about how justices work together, how they evaluate cases differently, and what his thoughts were on outside criticism.
