Quick Look: Supreme Court Nominee Visits Capitol Hill

Posted on: June 5, 2009

President Obama’s nominee for associate justice on the Supreme Court, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, has begun meeting with Senators on Capitol Hill in preparation for the confirmation process. The meetings will serve as a preview of what she can expect during the Senate approval process in the coming weeks. During the confirmation hearings, the nominee will be asked to explain, defend and clarify her responses to a lengthy questionnaire from the Judiciary Committee.

Judge Sotomayor (bio) is currently a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals in New York. She was tapped by President Barack Obama in late May to replace Justice David Souter, who has announced his plans to retire. Sotomayor has ruled in many high-profile cases, including issuing the initial injunction to end the Major League Baseball strike in the mid-1990s.

Here’s a great piece in the NY Times that lays out her most well-known rulings and opinions.
