Yesterday in Washington, DC during the American Constitution Society’s National Convention, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor risked triggering unhinged haters of Clarence Thomas with some nice words about her SCOTUS colleague:
“Justice Thomas is the one justice in the building that literally knows every employee’s name, every one of them. . . . he is a man who cares deeply about the court as an institution, about the people who work there — about people.” – Justice Sotomayor pic.twitter.com/Pz4TKWeFi3

Here’s part of what Justice Sotomayor said:
“Justice Thomas is the one justice in the building that literally knows every employee’s name, every one of them. And not only does he know their names, he remembers their families’ names and histories,” she said.
“He’s the first one who will go up to someone when you’re walking with him and say, ‘Is your son okay? How’s your daughter doing in college?’ He’s the first one that, when my stepfather died, sent me flowers in Florida.”
It’s nice to hear some calmer rhetoric at a time when there’s been a plot to assassinate Justice Kavanaugh and unhinged protesters have been showing up in front of the private residences of conservative members of the Court.

This is where we need to be as a society. Where we can disagree about principles, but still recognize the positives in each other. Bravo for leading by example https://t.co/EqGHqjoJRO

‘Sonia Sotomayor is QAnon now’? Lib geniuses suggest that Sonia Sotomayor is lying about NPR mask story in order to protect Neil Gorsuch
Justice Sonia Sotomayor says SCOTUS ‘lost our only civil rights lawyer’ when RBG died (perhaps she should have a word with Clarence Thomas)
