Sonia Sotomayor Confirmed for Supreme Court

Sonia SotomayorAfter months of will-she-won’t-she buzz, Sonia Sotomayor has officially been confirmed! The judge made history on Thursday after the Senate appointed her to be the nation’s first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice, and the third female justice.

Those who don’t live under a rock will realize what an amazing feat this is, not only because of her ethnicity and gender but also because of her very humble beginnings – which included growing up in a public housing project in the Bronx.

President Barack Obama, who selected Sotomayor at the end of May, expressed his gratitude for the Senate’s vote at the White House by saying, “this is a wonderful day for Judge Sotomayor and her family, but I also think it’s a wonderful day for America.”

Sotomayor will officially be sworn in at the Supreme Court by Chief Justice John Roberts this Saturday. (CNN.com)
