More on Sotomayor
The ACLU has written an insanely extensive report on Sotomayor's judicial history. I didn't read the whole thing - it's 88 pages, ferchrissakes - but I'm sure it's interesting if you have the time. From the bits I skimmed, it looks like a mixed bag. During the national security section, they talk a lot about her deference to the federal government, which is disturbing - but they also point out that she joined an opinion which struck down the National Security Letter gag rule, which is good.
