From The New York Times:

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote eight dissents this term, mostly in criminal cases. Taken together, they offer a window into Sotomayor’s skepticism about the justice system, particularly when it comes to warrantless searches. While other members of the court tend to take police at their word, Justice  Sotomayor has shown a propensity to see these cases from the perspective of the powerless.
