One interesting news item that I found compelling enough to post on the 4th of July. It appears that Sotomayor really can’t get away from trying to elevate minorities through unconstitutional affirmative action…
Sotomayor chaired the board of directors’ litigation committee for the The Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund, which sued on behalf of hispanic sanitation workers when not enough of them passed a job test.
Such cases seem to stick to Sotomayor. Certainly she didn’t have a direct hand in this case, although we can be relatively confident that she supported it considering her ruling in Ricci – a ruling that is thankfully now overturned.
Its very unfortunate, and its greater proof that Sotomayor will not be a friend of the originalists on the court.
