Sotomayor breaks Supreme Court’s new ‘quiet’ rule during immigration case

Message to Sonia: Zip it.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has the dubious distinction of being the first member of the nation’s highest court to break a new “two-minute rule” regarding justices asking questions.

And then she nearly did it a second time on the same day, according to reports.

The new guidance, which took effect with the start of the court’s new session, requires the court’s nine justices to allow lawyers to lay out their arguments, uninterrupted, for two full minutes before the justices start making inquiries.

The justices held back for the first six arguments of the term. But then Sotomayor apparently couldn’t control herself Wednesday, during an immigration-related case, Bloomberg Law reported.
