Supreme Court Reverses Sotomayor's Decision in New Haven Firefighter Discrimination Case

Sonia Sotomayor has had a setback while waiting for her confirmation hearing:

The Supreme Court has ruled that white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision that high court nominee Sonia Sotomayor endorsed as an appeals court judge.

The verdict was the right one, and I am pleased that the Supreme Court upheld justice in this case. Discrimination and racial preferences is wrong no matter who you are.

This will be a blemish on her record. However, I do not believe that it will mean the end to her chances of becoming a Supreme Court justice.

It could just a bump in the road on the road to confirmation. However, it could be a one of many strikes against her that could lead to her being out of the Supreme Court. Time will tell which.
