High court pick stays on ‘real world’ message

May 26, 2009

Hofstra University School of Law professor Eric Freedman, a Yale Law School classmate of Sotomayor’s, said “her judicial record and personal presentation will serve her well” on the high court. “She’s not going to show up with a view toward changing or fixing or reforming the Supreme Court.”

Sotomayor’s nomination has special meaning for Hispanic groups, especially lawyers who have seen potential Hispanic nominees to the high court passed over for years.
