Sonia Sotomayor ruled teenage blogger's First Amendment rights

The judge picked by Barack Obama to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court is one of the judges who determined that a Connecticut High School had the right to disqualify a student from running for school government because of what she had said about school officials on her own, personal, blog.  (Link to story here.)

Sonia Sotomayor stood against the First Amendment in the matter of Avery Doninger.

Sotomayor looks to be a constitutional nightmare but her ascendency to the Supreme Court wouldn't affect the balance of power anyway, since she's replacing another liberal and, frankly, I'm not sure the anybody else Barack Obama would ever appoint would be any better.
