Alliance for Justice President on Sotomayor

Nan Aron, president of Alliance for Justice, on the Sotomayor nomination:

"Alliance for Justice is thrilled with this choice. Sonia Sotomayor will be a strong voice to uphold the Constitution and the law to provide equal justice and protect personal freedoms for everyone in America, regardless of wealth, status, or popularity.

"President Obama has nominated a highly qualified candidate with a compelling personal story and outstanding educational credentials. The president is making history by nominating the first Latina to the Supreme Court. Judge Sotomayor has more federal judicial experience than any justice nominated to the Supreme Court in the past 100 years.

"Judges make a huge difference in our lives. Courts protect our air and water, hold corporations accountable, ensure equal opportunity and fair pay, and safeguard our personal freedoms.

"This nomination shows that President Obama is appointing judges who understand that the role of the courts is to give everyone a chance to be heard, to stand up for their rights, and get justice."
