Sotomayor says Scalia was like “a big brother who sometimes said the most annoying things.”

Justice Sonia Sotomayor says that life on the Supreme Court is a little quieter without Antonin Scalia around. One less dissenting voice from the leftist activism championed by Sotomayor.

She said, the court is “less fun” and quieter without him around. Scalia was known for his forays into oral arguments and in his absence Sotomayor said she found herself speaking more to fill the void.

“He was a big brother who sometimes said the most annoying things and we disagreed a lot in writing. But he was fun. And he was witty. And he was also an extrovert. We acknowledged that in each other. He was curious about the world. Sometimes he would bring up facts nobody else in the room knew. … He was entertaining, gregarious, generous when he felt you were in need. He cared.”
