Madam Associate Justice


A big Smith Dems congratulations to Sonia Sotomayor, confirmed today by the Senate to be the next associate justice of the Supreme Court! Nine Republicans joined the entire Democratic caucus to approve Sotomayor's nomination. Justice Sotomayor will join her colleagues for a busy next session of the Court, beginning in just over a month. President Obama heralded her confirmation this afternoon, saying, "with this historic vote, the Senate has affirmed that Judge Sotomayor has the intellect, the temperament, the history, the integrity and the independence of mind to ably serve on our nation’s highest court."
