The New Haven firefighters that were denied promotion because of their race, who Sotomayor ruled against with her decision being overturned by the Supreme Court during her nomination, have now been approved for promotion. The ceremony is scheduled for the 10th.
"The Board of Fire Commissioners today approved the promotions of one Hispanic and 13 white firefighters, giving them the advancement they fought for all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
A formal promotional ceremony is scheduled for Dec. 10."
