Sotomayor Confirmed 68-31

Sonia Sotomayor SmilingI know, this is not directly related to white collar crime or cyber terrorism, but it is still important. Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice yesterday by a vote of 68-31 by the Senate. According to the SCOTUS Blog, she is the 111th justice, the third female, third minority, and the first Hispanic appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States. And actually, this story is somewhat related to white collar crime, because Sotomayor will be sitting for the reargument of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the case of whether election laws require an anti-Hilary documentary to be counted as campaign contributions.
