Sotomayor reversed 60% by high court - Washington Times
380 cases. Five heard by the Supreme court. Three overturned. Twisted OP Kman. That is less than 1 percent. Unless you can come up with a better numbers for averages on reversed decisions it looks like there is not much to say here.
Weird thing is I have heard some things about reversal rates with her.. but I have not seen 1 reported # being the same.. would like some cold hard and verified stats on this
Mr. Gibbs dismissed questions about Judge Sotomayor's reversal rate, saying she wrote 380 majority opinions during her 11 years on the appeals court. Of those 380 opinions, the Supreme Court heard five of the cases and overturned her on three.
"The totality of the record is one that's more important to look at, rather than, like I said, some out-of-context or clipped way of looking at it," Mr. Gibbs said.
Still, Republicans will be under pressure from conservative and libertarian activist groups.......
See, Libertarians are just another branch of the GOP. Its like Bud and Bud Light. I can hardly tell the difference.
three, soon maybe four! is this good or not good? doyathink???
I'm sorry - that is flat wrong. She has had 3 reversals in over 300 of her decisions.
no, it's factually correct, but not particularly indicative of anything.
I think this is a better discussion of the empathy judge
Questions for Sotomayor - WSJ.com
Empathy judgments have no place.. this is about letter of the law and interpretation of the law based on the intent of the constitution
The court is not a 'feel good' place that sets aside the law for the sake of results
No, it is NOT factually correct. If she really had an 80% reversal rate, that would be indicitive, believe me. But she doesn't. Limbaugh bleats that she does - but he is (being charitable here) incorrect.
