As you may have heard President Obama has nominated Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court. Predictably the legal blogosphere is split along ideological lines. Conservative blogs such as Bench Memo (National Review magazine) have questioned Sotomayor’s activism. On the left blogs such as The Nation Sotomayor praise the nominee.
Looking for a less serious take on the nomination? Above The Law manages to work in a Jennifer Lopez reference. Slate’s Jurisprudence mixes clever headlines (“When Barry met Sonia”), pronunciation (“How to Pronounce Sotomayer” – with audio!) along with substantive analysis.
