    A cop shot an unarmed man in the back The Supreme Court says there doesn’t even need to be a trial
    Justice Sotomayor dissents

    The Supreme Court announced on Monday that it will do nothing for Mr. Salazar-Limon, a lower court decision holding Salazar-Limon will not even receive a full trial will stand without the Supreme Court hearing the case ...

    Justices turn away appeal from Houston man shot by police


    ... Her dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, drew a response from Justice Samuel Alito, who insisted the court applies "uniform standards" when deciding to review all such cases.

    Sotomayor has criticized the court before for siding with police in excessive force cases; in a 2015 dissent, she said the court was sanctioning a "'shoot first, think later' approach to policing" when it sided with a Texas state trooper who fatally shot a man fleeing from police ...
