Sonia Sotomayor confirmation hearing
Update: Judge Sotomayor gives her opening statement to conclude day one of the proceedings:
“Throughout my seventeen years on the bench, I have witnessed the human consequences of my decisions. Those decisions have been made not to serve the interests of any one litigant, but always to serve the larger interest of impartial justice.
“In the past month, many Senators have asked me about my judicial philosophy. It is simple: fidelity to the law.”
