 Three years of Sotomayor on the SCOTUS: a "historic advance for the
democratic rights of all women and Latinas/os" to help in attacking the
working class
 *The set-up*:

EDITORIAL: Another first with Sotomayor
http://www.workers.org/2009/editorials/sotomayor_0611/
....Sotomayor's long-time history of support and activism for affirmative
action policies for women and people of color, as a student and then in her
professional career....
....when the court was all-white and all-male, it voted time and again to
uphold race and sex discrimination....
....If Sotomayor is confirmed after such a strong attack on affirmative
action in Congress and in the corporate media, there is no guarantee how
she will vote on all issues. However, her accession to the court will be a
historic advance for the democratic rights of all women and Latinas/os....

*
The punchline*:

Sotomayor concurs with Alito, Roberts, Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, and
Ginsburg against public sector workers.
