We don’t think you have to have been an actual judge to sit in the Judge’s Chambers area of Yankee Stadium, but it probably doesn’t hurt. Still, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor didn’t want to take any chances when she went to Thursday’s New York Yankees game.
Sotomayor was fittingly spotted sitting in the Judge’s Chambers — the new fan section named for outfielder Aaron Judge. She wore a robe that featured the Yankees logo, and she appeared to be enjoying herself.

Sotomayor was fortunate enough to see Aaron Judge play. The outfielder returned to the lineup after missing the past couple games to clear his head.
We should note that Sotomayor is technically a justice, not a judge. There’s a difference. She was a judge for 10 years before serving on the Supreme Court.
Still, we wouldn’t mind if this suddenly became a thing. We’re all for famous judges cheering on the Yankees from the Judge’s Chambers. We’re not just talking Judge Judy or Judge Joe Brown either. We’ll gladly accept Judge Reinhold or Mike Judge.
