UK Law Professor Predicts Bumpy But Successful Confirmation For Sotomayor

Lexington, KY – Paul Salamanca clerked for outgoing Supreme Court Justice David Souter before joining the UK faculty some 14 years ago. Salamanca says Judge Sotomayor may have to counter Republican assertions that she has a tendency to "legislate from the bench". Professor Salamanca says unless conservative opponents uncover some particularly damaging personal or professional information on Judge Sotomayor, he predicts she will ultimately be confirmed to the highest court in the land.
