The Case Against Sonia Sotomayor

The New Republic’s Jeffery Rosen writes why Sonia Sotomayor should not be the next Supreme Court justice. The first two comments to the article provide very compelling reasons why the article is misguided, particularly the first comment by “Yale Law ’07.” (You have to ignore how pompous his/her username is – the substance is very good.) Other comments argued the exact opposite from other people who are purportedly “in the know.” I have no idea who to believe, but I don’t think I’m going to spend the energy to read her opinions to help figure it out because I’m not assigned to confirm her if she is nominated. I have read Clarett v. NFL, which Judge Sotomayor authored, which is certainly a well reasoned opinion.
