Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor Claims Emotional Breakdowns After Conservative Rulings

Justice Sonia Sotomayor of the Supreme Court has indicated her displeasure with judgments rendered by the conservative-leaning court, saying that she has "cried" over verdicts that did not have her joining the majority opinion.

Sotomayor said that she has had her share of dark and desperate times, but she thinks it is important to acknowledge and embrace these feelings. Sotomayor received the Radcliffe Medal from Radcliffe Dean Tomiko Brown-Nagin at Harvard's Radcliffe Institute. Brown-Nagin praised Sotomayor as an impartial adjudicator who understands the human consequences of legal rulings.

Former President Donald Trump confirmed and sat Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, and Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court, securing the court's conservative majority. In June 2022, the Supreme Court reversed its 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, giving the states back control over abortion laws.

Conservative justices winning decisions "truly traumatizes" Sotomayor, who has previously voiced her anger with her colleagues.
