ACLU issues analysis of Sotomayor rulings

by on June 11, 2009  •  In Constitutional law, Supreme Court

350. The ACLU has issued a detailed analysis of Judge Sonia Sotomayor's judicial record. The conclusion:

In general, Judge Sotomayor's judicial opinions reflect a detailed attention to the facts and a close regard for precedent.  They are carefully reasoned but do not engage in broad discussions about constitutional philosophy or competing modes of constitutional interpretation. Because Judge Sotomayor's opinions are so fact-based and rarely stray far from well-established precedents, they are often difficult to characterize as either liberal or conservative.
