Sotomayor Details Finances (WSJ article)

Post by preserve »

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124413031577885411.html
The judge listed assets of $31,985 in cash, $1,017,500 in real estate and $108,918 in personal property, against $418,350 in liabilities, including $15,823 in credit-card debt and $15,000 in dental bills. Her residence in a Manhattan apartment building is valued at $997,500.
Too bad nothing is said about her deferred accounts and/or pension.

Maybe not a part of the selection criteria, but 15k in dental bills seems quite high for a healthy individual.

Hi,
Here is an article about this in the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/06/us/po ... ney&st=cse

She needs to become a boglehead and get a financial plan.
Best Wishes, | Joe
