The Not So Wise Latina

Eric already blogged [1] on Ricci, but Ace  brings up an amusing point.    While the decision was five to four, along coservative liberal lines, the count was actually nine to zero against the Wise Latina, Sonia Sotomayor, via Ace [2]:

Wise Latina Overruled 9-0? [ace]: Ed Whelan at Bench Memos [3] argues the decision is actually 9-zip against Sotomayor — because even Justice Ginsburg says (though only in a footnote) that the appellate court should have remanded the case back to the district court, not summarily affirmed the lower decision.

The one’s so called moderate is not mainstream.   She not even a mainstream liberal.
