Perhaps the Supreme Court is a little hipper than we give it credit for.
The Washington Business Journal reported earlier today that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor closed on a two-bedroom condo near the U Street Corridor on June 19th. Justice Sotomayor paid $660,000 for her new home. For the past few years, she has been renting in Cleveland Park.
From the WBJ:
The address of the condo building is being withheld at the request of the Supreme Court, which cited safety issues in asking that the Washington Business Journal not disclose that information.
Sotomayor’s choice to live near U Street is a departure from the more established DC-area neighborhoods like Georgetown (home to Justice Stephen Breyer) and McLean (home to Justice Scalia) where those that sit on the Supreme Court have traditionally settled down.
