THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

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!

Hey Captain

Obama missed the chance to go with Florida and get the hispanic nominee.

How about, 56 year old hispanic, graduated law school in 1978 and been on the federal bench for 18 years.

Almost identical to his nominee; but our choice would have been

Obama just wants to make very sure that Roe v. Wade is not overturned.

With her, he is safe.

Princeton and Yale Law trumps Notre Dame and University of Miami Law.

Since I went to Harvard, I support the Ivy League pick.

You will never see a 'Cane on the Supreme Court.

I would have preferred Judge Esquroiz.

Because my rule is you cannot make unproven ad hominem attacks on someone especially without signing your name. That's why your comments about this particular public defender will not be posted. Write something with some substance and I will put it on the front page. Keeping writing that s/he is an asshole and you'll never see it here.

Get it?

5:32- but you did see a Pittsburgh Steeler on the Supreme Court. Byron Whizzer White.

Fake Judge Peter Adrien Camacho said...

The Supreme Court nomination should have gone to me, but I'm that disappointed. I have been told by high-ranking Obama administration members that the next opening is mine.

"Mister Justice Adrien Camacho" sounds pretty good, doesn't it?

If you want to call an ASA "snot nosed" then sign your name. The only one who gets to attack people anonymously here is me- and i reserve my vitriol for silent Public Defenders, and as you shall see tomorrow, Justice Scalia.

Hey Captain,

I think it a good idea that you let all the PDs and SAO know about the new "income based" rules for student loan repayment to be instituted July 1, 2009. Now, you all may get some relief... since the The John R. Justice Prosecutors and Defenders Incentive Act (Federal Legislation) although passed has never been funded. Check it out! You may half you payments...
