Judge Sotomayor made history

Judge Sonia Sotomayor has made history as the country's first Hispanic Supreme Court justice. Judge Sotomayor was born in the Bronx, New York to Puerto Rican parents. She did her undergraduate studies at Michelle Obama's alma mater, Princeton University, and her law studies at the Clintons' law alma mater, Yale University School. At her swearing in on Saturday, August 8th, Judge Sotomayor became the 111th Supreme Court justice and only its third female judge.

  1. This is good news for latinos. I wish Obama had nominated a black woman. It is time we had a seat on the court.
