Latina named to Supreme Court, Honorable Sonia Sotomayor

President Obama will nominate appeals court judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court on today, officials said, making her the first Hispanic in history to be elevated to the high court.

Sotomayor, 54, who has been a federal judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit since 1998, has a formidable resume. From 1992 to 1998, Sotomayor was a federal judge for the U. S. District Court Southern District of New York. She served as an assistant district attorney for New York County from 1979 to 1984. Sotomayor also worked in private practice for the New York-based law firm Pavia & Harcourt from 1984 to 1992.

Well if it was not going to be an LGBT person I am as extremely pleased that is it an overly quailfied Latina Woman. Go Sonia! Show those white men how Latinas do it :)
