Obama nominates Sotomayor to SCOTUS

President Obama on Tuesday nominated federal appellate Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court.

If confirmed, Sotomayor, 54, would be the first Hispanic U.S. Supreme Court justice and the third woman to serve on the high court.

Sotomayor “is an inspiring woman who I believe will make a great justice,” Obama said at a White House announcement.

She “has worked at almost every level of our judicial system, providing her with a depth of experience and a breadth of perspective that will be invaluable as a Supreme Court justice,” he added.

Obama said Sotomayor would bring more experience on the bench than anyone currently serving on the Supreme Court when appointed.
