Sotomayor Ruling Overturned In New Haven Firefighter Case Ricci v DeStefano
Nominee for the Supreme Court, the "Reverse Racist" Sonnia Sotomayor witnessed her ruling in New Haven Firefighter case Ricci v DeStefano OVERTURNED. USA MacPaper:
The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of white Connecticut firefighters in a 5-4 ruling that reverses an appeals court finding by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, the Associated Press reports.
The high court found that the firefighters in New Haven, Conn., were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision that Sotomayor endorsed as an appeals court judge.
Update at 10:38 a.m. ET: The court ruled that New Haven was wrong to scrap a promotion exam because no African Americans and only two Hispanic firefighters were likely to be made lieutenants or captains based on the results, the AP says. The city said that it had acted to avoid a lawsuit from minorities.
“Fear of litigation alone cannot justify an employer’s reliance on race to the detriment of individuals who passed the examinations and qualified for promotions,” Justice Anthony Kennedy said in his opinion for the court. He was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.
Dissenting Justices were Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, David Souter and John Paul Stevens.
I love the Libs out there who agreed with Sotomayor's original decision. They say, yeah, make the test easier for minorities. Yeah, that's just what we need in a firefighter, huh? Someone who passed the test because it was made "easier." Do you want a person who passed a test because it was made "easier" rescuing you or your loved ones from a burning home?
How about a doctor? Do you want a doctor treating you who passed his exams because a test was made "easier," taking into account his/her minority status? If you do, great, book him as your personal physician. But allow the rest of us to seek out the person best qualified for the job, not someone who passed a test because it was made "easier."
You Liberals and Progressives are stupid. You do know that, right?
Sotomayor has a 60 percent failure rate and she says she was inspired to enter the law profession by Nancy Drew novels.
She's a legal lightweight. She has no business being a Supreme Court nominee. She is horribly under-qualified for the position. But she's a woman and she's not white...and that's why FraudyObama nominated her and that is the only reason. Bork her. Bork her good.
The RINO's are probably too chicken shit to do it though.
YES YES YES! They will cave like the moderate, spineless POS they are. Watch and see! You are so frekkin' right on the money with your statement. SPOT ON, my friend!
you are SPOT ON the money too!
We know why she was picked. She has a vagina and she's not "whitey." Exactly...you nailed it! That is why Pbama nom'd her. No doubt about it.
Brenda, your comment borders on racism, if in fact (and I'm trying to be objective here) it doesn't well crossover the line into abject racism.
The quote about Sotomayor castrating white men is a hoax. Please research it on your own and seek the truth.
