Appropriate? Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Sesame Street
By Orin Kerr
News that a Supreme Court justice appeared on a TV show would normally make me cringe. But I think this appearance by Justice Sotomayor on Sesame Street is really terrific. Kudos to Justice Sotomayor for being a good sport about it.
Putting aside the lack of a federal question, it seems a tad unfair to ignore the trespass before pressuring the parties to settle in way so favorable to the trespasser. But I suppose it’s nicer to hear the case than just deny cert as factbound and splitless.
