In the New York Times online "Room for Debate" feature, amid one of his usual diatribes against Republicans, Salon blogger/attorney Glenn Greenwald has some unkind words for Judge Sotomayor as well, assailing as perhaps "disturbing" her "excessively mechanistic and legalistic" rulings against plaintiffs. Alas, he misses a chance to add perspective to this interesting complaint by not apprising readers that he himself as private lawyer was on the losing side of one of these rulings of hers (earlier).
