The Cato Institute is all over this nomination. Roger Pilon writes that Sotomayor is clearly outside the mainstream. Ilya Shapiro points out the concerns over her qualifications that must be part of any debate (yes, I believe that Judge Sotomayor is smart, but being smart does not necessarily equate to being a good judge), and David Boaz channels Richard Epstein to highlight the fact that Sotomayor would be bad for property rights. Read it all.
And while they are not from the Cato Institute, Ted Frank’s demolition of the myth that Sonia Sotomayor “saved baseball,” and John McCormack’s clarification of the supposed “bipartisan” nature of Judge Sotomayor’s nomination to the district court under George H.W. Bush are both very much worth perusing.
