A ruling last year in a child pornography case is one of dozens of Judge Sonia Sotomayor's opinions that defy easy categorization as liberal or conservative. It shows an ex-prosecutor's understanding of law enforcement needs, an appellate judge's deference to Supreme Court precedent and a liberal's empathy for a defendant ensnared primarily because his e-mail address was found in the wrong place. It's one of many decisions the Senate will scrutinize in anticipation of her Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
