"It's Justice Sotomayor now. Sonia Sotomayor has been sworn in as the Supreme Court's first Hispanic justice. She's only the third female justice in the court's 220-year history.

Sotomayor took the second of two oaths of office Saturday from Chief Justice John Roberts in an ornate conference room at the high court, beneath a portrait of the legendary Chief Justice John Marshall. She swore a first oath in a private ceremony minutes earlier.

  1. I think sonya soto mayor shouldn’t have been nominated because she has a mind that favors one group over the other. They are giving her a job that requires a vast level of maturity.Well, how mature was it to say that as a latina she could do a much better job than a white man. As a white Spanish American male I was offended by her comment. Latin americans just rezent how they’ve been treated by whites due to there brown coloring. Anglos(irish,englis,germans) might like latin Americans but I dont care for them.They probably feel the same way about me. I wish to go back to spain so that my children never think to marry them.

  3. I am just confused how she can even be considered after her ruling in the appelate court allowing New Haven, CT. to throw out a promotional exam list because not enough minorities passed the exam, her decision was later overturned by the supreme court but yet she is now a justice for life......?
