How might her experience as a trial judge impact the Court? President Obama indicated he was looking for a jurist who had "a common touch and a sense of compassion." Is he suggesting the current Supreme Court is out of touch with the impact their decisions have on Americans? We'll examine how Sotomayor, if confirmed, might affect the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court and its decision-making in the coming years.
Bob Power, Professor of Law, Widener University
