"'Judicial activist' is an overused term, but one that fairly applies to Obama's Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor. Across a broad array of cases spanning copyright, tax, and securities law, Judge Sotomayor has evidenced a clear penchant for substituting her policy preferences for clear statutory text and expanding liability against private entities. Her nomination is a disappointment for those who would prefer that Supreme Court justices show respect for the rule of law."
