Elena Kagan's confirmation this afternoon means that the Supreme Court has three women. All of them are New Yorkers. Roberts is a New York native-- he was born in Buffalo, although he didn't grow up here (he is admitted in DC). Alito and Scalia are both from New Jersey. The only southerner is Thomas. Breyer and Kennedy were both born in California, but once Breyer hit Harvard Law he was a Massachusetts guy; Kennedy went back. California is the only state where he is admitted. Interestingly Scalia is admitted in both Virginia and Ohio (he practiced with Jones, Day in Cleveland from 1961 to 1967. Thomas is admitted in Missouri.
