Yesterday was the Supreme Court’s opening day, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor took an active role in oral arguments. Sotomayor "displayed no reticence on the first day of her first term on the court; in the two cases on the docket, she asked as many questions and made as many comments as Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.,” reported the Washington Post.What up, chatty? Who's asking as many questions as John "open face" Roberts? Sonia, that's who.
In just an hour, the court's newest justice asked more questions than Justice Clarence Thomas has asked over the course of several years.Hey, why the cheap shot?
Thomas has gone three years straight without posing a question during oral arguments.Shhhh. He's sleeping.
