BREAKING: Supreme Court Overturns Sotomayor – again

Headline:

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has ruled that white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision that high court nominee Sonia Sotomayor endorsed as an appeals court judge.

The wise Latina got it wrong.  Again.

Justice for Ricci and a blow to racial preferences.

Updates to come.

Update #1: Both the AP and NYT headlines read that the Supreme Court ruled in favor of white firefighters.  WRONG.  A Hispanic was also discriminated against when his test was tossed.  Also of note is the glaring omission of Sotomayor’s name in their headlines.

Update #2:  copy of decision in pdf

  1. Lets hope this doesn’t drag on, but it most likely will. The mayor of New Haven is a bought and sold hack, shilling for ethnic minority votes, which is what this whole incident was about.NH is also a sanctuary city for illegals. Imagine that.

  2. As a firefighter, I could not be happier for the NH-20. What I do find discpicable has been the silence from the IAFF [International Association of Fire Fighters] union and the UPFFA [Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters of America-CT branch] After the announcement was read, there was a neutral comment by the IAFF, with the ending statement, that they would be investigating and commenting later. Nothing like staying on the fence.
