Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, addressing the 2nd Circuit's annual conference, signaled her admiration for Judge Sonia Sotomayor, saying that the nominee will bring to the Court "a wealth of experience in law and in life." She said she will be "so glad no longer to be the lone woman on the Court." Ginsburg also dropped some clues about big rulings to come, and revealed a reason why the profanities at issue in the so-called "fleeting expletives" case last fall weren't actually uttered at the high court.
