Yesterday, I noted that If Elena Kagan is confirmed, all three of the Supreme Court’s female Justices will be from New York city. A reader adds that all three will also be former summer associates at the New York city law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.
That firm declined, however, to offer Ruth Bader Ginsburg a job as a regular associate back in the bad old days when law firms discriminated on the basis of gender.
To the best of my knowledge, neither Sonia Sotomayor nor Kagan was ever an associate with Paul Weiss either. However, this was by the choice of Sotomayor and Kagan, I assume.
