Supreme Court justices just like the rest of us ... sort of

We’ve all felt it.

That sinking feeling deep in the abdomen, the direct result of hitting the send button, an email intended for someone else.

Imagine inadvertently emailing a United States Supreme Court justice?

The outcome may surprise you.

According to, linked here, Gonzaga University law professor Ann Murphy hit “reply all” to an email she received and thereby, unknowingly, communicated with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor (pictured here).

Murphy apologized for her error but the result was an exchange between the two, leading to another face-to-face meeting at a Washington D.C. law conference.

Apparently, this isn’t the first time a member of the nation’s highest court has responded in similar fashion. The remainder of the post is dedicated to the topic.
