Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor cheered on the Yankees from Aaron Judge's cheering section, 'Judge's Chambers'

As an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor is one of the most important and informed legal minds in the country. As a Bronx native, she's also a committed Yankees fan.

On Thursday night, the latter of those two distinctions took precedence as Sotomayor traveled back to her old stomping grounds to watch the Bronx Bombers take on the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium.

Adding to the fun of the evening was where Sotomayor chose to sit — Aaron Judge's cheering section, known at the stadium as "Judge's Chambers," where fans don robes and gavels and implore fellow fans to "All rise!"

Sotomayor was happy to play along with the shenanigans of the Yankees crowd, and could be seen having a great time taking in the game.

Just look at how happy she is in this clip from the game, courtesy of MLB.

Sotomayor's presence might've been a good luck charm for the Yankees, who beat the Red Sox 6-2 to stay atop the AL Wild Card race and cutting the Red Sox lead in the division to 4.5 games. Judge went 0-2 with two walks and a run.
