SCOTUS: Fundamentals of Justice

The American Constitution Society recently held a discussion regarding SCOTUS nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor. It was moderated by the wonderful Dahlia Lithwick of Slate, who had her hands full.

My favorite part of the back and forth was the discussion regarding real world, life experience versus, as Ed Whelan condescendingly describes it:

…indulging your experience in an improper way.

If ever there were a "pot, this is kettle" moment for the former Scalia law clerk, this is it. Especially given his latest fit of a long line of piques.

You can watch the entire back and forth at the ACS website, as well as selected excerpts.
