Supreme Court


The New York Times reports:

Other than Ricci, Judge Sotomayor has decided 96 race-related cases while on the court of appeals.

Of the 96 cases, Judge Sotomayor and the panel rejected the claim of discrimination roughly 78 times and agreed with the claim of discrimination 10 times; the remaining 8 involved other kinds of claims or dispositions. Of the 10 cases favoring claims of discrimination, 9 were unanimous.

[Emphasis mine]

But, but, but there's that one time! Why did Judge Sotomayor hate white people that one time!?

Seriously, though, Republican attacks aside, this is actually a tough set of numbers for anti-discrimination activists.
