SOTOMAYOR TO BE SWORN IN SATURDAY

Posted: Thursday, August 06, 2009 3:25 PM by Domenico Montanaro
Filed Under: Courts, Pete Williams

From NBC's Pete Williams

Though Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed today by the Senate to become the next Supreme Court justice, she is technically not yet "Justice" Sotomayor. She won't be until she takes both the federal oath and the judicial oath on Saturday.

A White House official says Sonia Sotomayor will stay out of public view today. She's at her chambers at the federal courthouse in New York.

She'll be sworn in on Saturday at the Supreme Court by Chief Justice Roberts. (That event will be available for TV pool coverage, which will be a first for the court.)

Justice Sotomayor will be the court's second-youngest member, at age 55. Only Roberts, who turned 54 in January, is younger.

can't wait to call her Justice Sotomayor--watch that stick in the throats of those who voted against her. Asses!

Franken's speech yesterday on the Senate floor was brilliant, blistering and right on the freakin' mark.

5. SOOO glad they did a voice vote. Not sure if it is required for this type of vote
but to hear jerkasses like Inhofe audibly say no to Latinos and to this brilliant judge in particular will be something to pound them into the ground with.
