Justice Sotomayor reveals wedding night drug story
Posted by Staff
The Daily Mail reports:

Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor revealed the fact that her ex-husband brought a bag of Quaaludes to his new wife on their wedding night.

She also told other unusually personal stories about her upbringing in the Bronx, like how she unknowingly brought her cousin to a drug den where he shot up heroin.

Sotomayor went on to describe how her personal health battle with diabetes caused her to fear dying at a young age and, in turn, stopped her from having children.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor told of these intimate stories about her upbringing in her memoir, titled 'My Beloved World', which is due to be released in January.

The Associated Press received an early copy of the book and previewed some of the most interesting anecdotes about the justice's upbringing.

Given her position as one of the three-serving female judges on the country's highest bench, Sotomayor wrote only about her life leading up to her judicial career, purposefully avoiding any potential conflicts of interest.

Much of the book is spent discussing Sotomayor's underprivileged upbringing in the South Bronx, where her family was so poor that they never had a bank account. Facebook Fark Furl
