Sonia Sotomayor: Legal Realist:

The WSJ reports on Judge Sotomayor's embrace of legal realism and the work of Jerome Frank.

UPDATE: The speech in question was published as "Returning Majesty to the Law and Politics: A Modern Approach" (with Nicole Gordon), 30 Suffolk U.L. Rev. 35 (1996) [and is available in PDF here]. Ed Whelan also comments on the speech here.

Meanwhile, Politico reports "legal realism" may become the new "judicial activism."
