Who is Sonia Sotomayor? Personal Views

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor grew up in the projects in the Bronx, then went on to Princeton and Yale Law School before working as a Manhattan DA and then a federal judge. Yale Law Professor and novelist Stephen Carter was in Sotomayor's law school class, now he teaches some of her opinions in her own classes. He'll join John and Farai to share his professional—and personal—perspective on the nominee. Also joining the conversation is Jenny Rivera who clerked for Sotomayor in 1993 and is now a law professor at the City University of New York Law School.
