Justice Sonia Sotomayor Opened Up to a Florida Crowd

This week United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor spoke at the Forum Club in Florida.  She discussed her upbringing in the South Bronx and what led her to become a lawyer and judge.  She was initially inspired by the courtroom drama Perry Mason. During the question and answer period she stated she’s no longer inclined to support cameras in the Supreme Court.  Cameras lead to grandstanding.  However, she was quick to point out that the Supreme Court’s website publishes the transcript and audio recording from every oral argument.  On a more personal note she remarked becoming a Supreme Court Justice does have certain disadvantages– undergoing the particularly unpleasant confirmation process and the resultant loss of privacy.  You can hear the Justice speak @http://goo.gl/qeNtuu.
