Circuit, volunteered as a lawyer with the ACLU, and taught at Rutger's University Law School and at her alma mater, Columbia Law School.Ginsburg was the second woman appointed to the US Supreme Court.Sonia SotomayorSonia Sotomayor President Barack Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to fill the vacant seat of retired Justice David H. Souter. Justice Sotomayor was approved by a Senate vote of 68-31 and sworn-in on August 8, 2009.Sotomayor is a 1979 graduate of Yale Law School who, contrary to rumor, passed the bar exam on her first attempt.Prior to joining the Court, Sotomayor spent nine years in private practice before President George H. W. Bush nominated her for an opening on the US District for the Southern District of New York in 1992. In 1998, she was commissioned to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, making her the Supreme Court justice with the most lower-court judicial experience.Sotomayor is the first Latina and only the third female justice appointed in the Supreme Court's history.Elena KaganPresident Obama nominated US Solicitor General Elena Kagan on May 9, 2010, to succeed Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired from the Court on June 29.

Where was Supreme Court judge Sonia Sotomayour a judge before she was confirmed?

Sonia Sotomayor's first venture into private practice came from running her own solo firm, Sotomayor & Associates, out of her Brooklyn apartment, from 1983-86. In 1984, she joined the firm Pavia & Harcourt, which employs about 30 lawyers. Sotomayor specialized in litigating intellectual property rights and international law. She says she spent a lot of time tracking down manufacturers of Fendi (designer accessories) knock-offs and prosecuting them. Sotomayor was made a partner in the firm in 1988, and remained there until 1992, when President George H. W. Bush nominated her to be a judge in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. She has served in the federal judiciary ever since.


What political party does Sotomayor belong to?

AnswerSonia Sotomayor is registered as an Independent, and is considered a centrist by the American Bar Association, based on their analysis of her case rulings. Her opinions tend to focus more on strict legal analysis than on personal or ideological philosophy.Sotomayor is known for being well prepared and knowledgeable about cases tried in, or reviewed by, her court. Her background as a social activist has not undermined her ability to make balanced decisions, nor has it shown bias toward any group or cause. For example, the ABA noted that she rejected 45 of the 50 racial discrimination cases they studied in forming their conclusion.Although some ultra-conservative figures, like Rush Limbaugh, characterize her as being both extremely liberal and racist, this accusation is not borne by the evidence.Sotomayor's judicial career began in 1992, when George H. W. Bush nominated her to the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, with the enthusiastic backing of both New York Republican and Democratic Senators.Bill Clinton nominated Sotomayor to the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in 1997. Her nomination was held in the Senate for a year because some Republicans were afraid she was being put on a fast-track to the US Supreme Court. She was finally confirmed by a Senate vote of 67-29 (which included approval from 25 Republicans) in 1998.On May 26, 2009, President Obama nominated Sotomayor to fill the Supreme Court seat being vacated by the now-retired Justice David Souter. The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin hearings on her appointment on July 13, 2009.On August 6, 2009, the US Senate confirmed Sotomayor's nomination by a vote of 68-31, making her the 111th US Supreme Court Justice. Although the vote was split along party lines, the unanimous Democratic endorsement was joined by nine Republicans and both Senate Independents.AnswerIn theory she is not supposed to reveal her party affiliation. She was nominated under a Democratic administration and has liberal leanings.
