U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor on Monday resorted to the words of a French author to express her displeasure with the high court’s repeated refusal to take up death penalty cases from Florida.

“Toutes choses sont dites déjà; mais comme personne n’écoute, il faut toujours recommencer,” she wrote in a footnote in her dissent from the denial of certiorari in Cozzie v. Florida. The English translation of the 1892 maxim by French writer Andre Gide is: “Everything has been said already; but as no one listens, we must always begin again.” (Sotomayor included the translation.)
