Here is an interesting news item about the newest Supreme Court Justice.
Looks like she is a born Theosophist. What caught my eye was that:
Sotomayor knew and invited everyone in the courthouse. People who work in
the cafeteria, the security guards, the custodians are equally as important
as her colleagues.
Here is the link and an excerpt.
(CBS) What you might not know about Sonia Sotomayor is that she's not
always the reserved workaholic judge she portrayed in the Senate hearings,
reports CBS News correspondent Wyatt Andrews.
Friends, like former law clerk Allison Barkoff say that Sotomayor has a big,
engaging New York personality.
"Yeah she's fun, she works hard and plays hard," Barkoff said.
Melissa Murray clerked for two Federal judges, including Sotomayor - and
when both judges came to Melissa's wedding, Sotomayor challenged the other
judge to a dance off.
"She's incredibly funny," said Murray. "I think people enjoyed seeing that,
seeing two federal judges dual it out on the dance floor."
Then there's Sotomayor's now famous Christmas parties, which included salsa
dancing inside the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan. They were
held out in the hallway of the courthouse with a great spread of food, and
usually a DJ, Barkoff said.
But what Barkoff also recalls from the party is that Sotomayor knew and
invited everyone in the courthouse.
"People who work in the cafeteria, the security guards, the custodians are
equally as important as her colleagues," Barkoff said.
