2009-AUG-06: Judge Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed as the newest Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court. as well as only the third female justice and the first Hispanic justice in history. Since appointments are for life, she may serve three decades on the court. The Senate vote of 66 to 31 was essentially on party lines, with 59 Democrats and nine Republicans voting in favor.

President Obama called the Senate vote "historic." He said:

"The Senate has affirmed that Justice Sotomayor has the intellect, the temperament, the history, the integrity and the independence of mind to ably serve on our nation's highest court."
