Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor praised fellow Justice Clarence Thomas during a speech Tuesday, and said that while they may disagree ideologically, “I just love the man as a person.”

Sotomayor spoke to students at Vanderbilt University in Nashville and said the justices have mutual respect for one another, according to reports.

She cited Thomas as the colleague “with whom I probably disagree the most,” but spoke highly of his character.

“He knows the name of every single employee in the building,” Sotomayor told students, according to reports. “I can stand here and say I just love the man as a person. He has the same value toward human beings as I have, despite our differences.”
