The Scouting Report: Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor

Event Materials

Summary

Senate confirmation hearings begin July 13 for President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

Senate Republicans have raised concerns about the nominee, the first Hispanic American nominated for a lifetime appointment to the high court. If confirmed, Sotomayor will be only the third woman to serve as a Supreme Court justice.

Brookings expert Russell Wheeler and Politico Senior Editor Fred Barbash took questions about the historic nomination in this edition of the Scouting Report.
