This is a high point for justice, and I wish her well.

U.S. President Barack Obama tapped U.S. Circuit Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court on Tuesday, officials said, making her the first Hispanic in history picked to wear the robes of a justice.

If confirmed by the Senate, Sotomayor, 54, would succeed retiring Justice David Souter. Two officials described Obama's decision on condition of anonymity because no formal announcement had been made.

Administration officials say Sotomayor would bring more judicial experience to the Supreme Court than any justice confirmed in the past 70 years.

The court has descended to representing injustice and the powers of business, under the past terms of right wing representatives. It is past time for respect for law to retutn to this country.

The law, as the president has stated, is about people, not just paper and pencils.

sorry 'bout the surgery, ruta, mia...

about sotomayor?

Every SCOTUS nominee since 1971, except Ginsberg, has 'ruled' further to the Right than their predecessor...

I am not anti-catholic, i am anti-clerical, and anti-church, and I don't think it is healthy for the Supreme Court of a secular state to have seated in 'justice,' SIX members of the Roman Catholic Church. Mebbe in Ireland, or Malawi, but in the US? No, no, no...Latino Catholics are the MOST conservative node of the Church. I live with 'em out here and they're the most reactionary morons you'd ever want to meet...
