Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor Buys U Street Corridor Condo

Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor Buys U Street Corridor Condo: Figure 1

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.

    "11th St. Resident" read the italicized section about how the SCOTUS withheld the address for security reasons. He/She just doesn't care though.

    Or maybe "11th st resident" realized her name is in the publicly available real estate records online so it was silly to withhold the info? Also, as soon as she moves in people will know. Come on, people. THINK.

    That was really uncool to list the building she lives in.

    Seriously. A 2-minute search on Zillow will reveal the address. This is public information. If they're so concerned about not giving out the adddress then don't put the sales price/acquisition date out there. The joke's on them really.

    Thank you for your assistance. All the nutbars out there who didn't go to Zillow to look up the address really appreciate it.

    Who really cares where someone lives anyways? Pointless article.

    Having grown up in the Bronx, this just shows that she is "Real People" and wants to live amongst them and enjoy a great area and city.
