Pelosi on Sotomayor

Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement on the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor by President Obama to serve as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:

“I commend President Obama’s nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Judge Sotomayor's experiences and understanding of the law will assure a strong voice for fairness on the Supreme Court. Judge Sotomayor will preserve our civil liberties, maintain the independence of the judiciary, and protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

"As the first Latina to be nominated for the Supreme Court, Judge Sotomayor's nomination and life story are a testament to the American values of equality, opportunity, and justice. Her outstanding intellectual achievements -- as a student, attorney and judge -- make her one of the most qualified nominees in many years. I look forward to her timely confirmation by the United States Senate."
