Sotomayer - The end of judges actually ruling based on law.

Empathy trumps legality - from

Judge Sonia Sotomayor is Obama's nominee for Supreme Court Justice. Get ready for some sweet bench legislation coming our way, as she did in the New Haven Firefighter case where she was on a panel that tossed out a case based on empathy rather than legality. But that shouldn't be surprising from someone who says stuff like: “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion (as a judge) than a white male who hasn't lived that life” -Sonia Sotomayor. She's also smooth. After her comments on legislating from the bench she says "This is on tape, I probably shouldn't be saying this." Obama sure knows how to pick em' eh?
