Justice Sonia Sotomayor

Posted By on Thu, Aug 6, 2009 at 2:20 PM

The vote was 68-31. All the Democrats, except absent Sen. Edward Kennedy, and nine Republicans voted for the first Latino justice.

Profile in Courage: After the vote. an e-mail from Sen. Mark Pryor arrived saying he supported Sotomayor's confirmation.

The concern I’ve heard most often from Arkansans regarding judicial nominees is that activist judges have no place on the highest court of the land. I agree. Time and again, Judge Sotomayor has demonstrated that she approaches cases well-studied and without bias or agenda.  I cannot predict the outcome of her rulings as a Supreme Court Justice, but I do believe that she will consider each case in a fair and impartial manner.
