This is awesome. Just what I like to see.

Sotomayor peppered the lawyers with questions in a pair of cases, joining with Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg during the oral arguments. Together, they left the other justices sitting in silence for much of the time.

In the first hour alone, Sotomayor asked 36 questions, and Scalia followed with 30. Ginsburg is particularly interested in legal procedures, and she and Sotomayor dominated the questioning for much of the second hour.

otherwise, what? You might think she just doesn’t care. Or her mind is already made up and she doesn’t need to be bothered engaging with the actual case. Like, oh, I dunno this guy?

Justice Clarence Thomas has not asked a question for more than three years.

Heckuva job Clarence.
