Judge Sotomayor has resigned her membership at the Belizean Grove, the all-women’s group that bills itself as women’s answer to the 130-year-old all-male Bohemian Club in California. In a letter to Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Judge Sotomayor said she was convinced that the club, the Belizean Grove, did not practice “invidious discrimination” and that her membership in it did not violate judicial ethics. But she said she did not want questions about it to “distract anyone from my qualifications and record.”
