BREAKING NEWS ....... U.S. SUPREME COURT .....
SONIA SOTOMAYOR NOMINATED TO SUPREME COURT
Looks like it's the hispanic female as Pres. B. Obama will announce his nomination of Sonia Sotomayor, age 54, to replace David Souter. She is a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
Sotomayor was born in the Bronx, New York, to Puerto Rican parents. Princeton undergrad & Yale Law School graduating in 1979; after five years as an ADA in New York, she moved on to private practice for seven years. She was nominated on November 27, 1991, by President George H. W. Bush to a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. On June 25, 1997, she was nominated by former President Bill Clinton to the seat she now holds.
And, in case you care, she's a fan of the New York Yankees!
