Best Answer

US Supreme Court justices do not advertise their party affiliation because they're not supposed to consider partisan ideology when making decisions. Unfortunately, in the real world, ideology plays a major role in constitutional interpretation and decision-making.

The current Court leans toward conservatism: five justices were appointed by Republican Presidents and often support the Republican agenda; four were appointed by Democratic Presidents and typically support a more liberal agenda. Sonia Sotomayor, one of President Barack Obama's Supreme Court appointees, has stated she's registered as an Independent.
