No Indictment of Her Intelligence

6 05 2009

One of Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s former clerks, Robin Kar, who is now a Professor of Law and Philosophy, penned a vigorous and eloquent defense of his mentor’s record, work ethic and intelligence at PrawfsBlawg. Sotomayor has come under harsh or better yet hatch job like criticism since media reports began suggesting she is on President Obama’s short list to replace Justice David H. Souter on the Supreme Court.

Money quote:

I suspect that some people on the left may be concerned about Judge Sotomayor because she may not be the “liberal antidote to Justice Scalia” that some have desired. But this is no indictment of her intelligence, but rather of their imagination.
