"Sexist, Plain And Simple"
The New York Times runs an article claiming that conservatives will attack Judge Sonia Sotomayor for her harsh questioning in oral argument. From the gang that reveres Justice Scalia, this is just rich. But Sotomayor's colleague on the Second Circuit, Judge Guido Calabresi, cuts right through the BS:
Judge Guido Calabresi, a former dean of Yale Law School who taught Ms. Sotomayor there and now sits with her on the Second Circuit, said complaints that she had been unduly caustic have no basis. For a time, Judge Calabresi said, he kept track of the questions posed by Judge Sotomayor and other members of the court. “Her behavior was identical,” he concluded. “Some lawyers just don’t like to be questioned by a woman,” he added. “It was sexist, plain and simple.”
(Emphasis supplied.) Indeed.
