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.

“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.
