CONTENTIONS contributor Linda Chavez has testified in opposition. Her complete testimony is here. Unfortunately, these witnesses get an abbreviated time to provide only the gist of their remarks. Linda’s are worth reading in full. In particular, she debunks Sotomayor’s quite misleading spin on Ricci:

As you know, the Supreme Court reversed Judge Sotomayor and ruled 5-4 in favor of the firefighters. Even the dissenting justices did not endorse the approach taken by the lower courts, which dismissed the plaintiffs’ claims without a full hearing. What’s more, President Obama’s own legal experts thought that the Second Circuit’s decision was wrong, in light of the evidence that the city’s actions were motivated, not by any real legal concerns, but by nothing but racial politics. So the Justice Department’s brief also urged that Judge Sotomayor’s decision be reversed and sent back for more work.
