Still The People's Justice?

A few years ago I wrote an essay labeling Justice Sonia Sotomayor "The People's Justice" for her interest in and capacity to communicate to and with larger public audiences.  While I was primarily talking about her communications with the public outside of her judicial opinions, her dissent from the Court's denial of cert in Salazar-Limon v. City of Houston is notable for its expressive effect.  It has received a lot of media coverage already, including from places not normally known for their coverage of Court opinions.
