Sonia Sotomayor

Sonia Sotomayor
President Barack Obama nominated federal judge Sonia Sotomayor of New York for the Supreme Court, positioning the longtime federal jurist to become the first Hispanic member of the nation's highest court.

She was elevated to the circuit court, one of the nation's most prestigious, by Democratic President Bill Clinton in 1998.
