Does Justice Sotomayor prefer the Constitution or diversity?

In a speech last week at Brooklyn Law School, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor said that the nation’s highest court needs more strict constitutionalists in order to protect the Republic. Wait a minute. *checking my notes* I’m sorry. That’s…

And so it begins: GOP Senators agree to meet with Obama’s SCOTUS nominee

In the hours following Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court following the death of Antonin Scalia, Republicans reiterated their plan to postpone taking any action until after the November election. Meanwhile, the Democrats…
