Rep. Fattah calls Sotomayor Vote a “Win-Win” for Supreme Court and Nation

WASHINGTON – Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) issues the following statement upon confirmation of federal Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the United States Supreme Court:

“Congratulations to our newest Justice Sonia Sotomayor upon confirmation to the Supreme Court of the United States, and to President Obama for his history-making and far-sighted appointment of such a highly qualified jurist.

“The Supreme Court is a better place today, thanks to the votes of Senators Arlen Specter, Bob Casey and an overwhelming, bipartisan majority of the United States Senate. Justice Sotomayor’s confirmation is win-win for our highest court and for the nation. The fact that she is Latina is simply a bonus for a court that has, for too long, reflected only a portion of the American landscape.”
