Sotomayor, Equal Justice & Civil Gideon

What is the connection between Sotomayor, Equal Justice and Civil Gideon?

An July 13th Opinion piece by Jonathan Smith at The National Law Journal.

The gist: Barriers exist in the civil legal setting, largely for people who are low-income or of modest means. This issue has not yet risen to the national level of concern such that it will even be a part of the questioning for the proposed U.S. Supreme Court justice. Isn’t it time to add that question to the consciousness of those in the running for the highest Court in the U.S.? After all, the building itself contains the phrase “Equal Justice Under the Law.”
