One More Week For Sotomayor Vote
Headline Legal News | 2009/07/21 17:10
The National Law Journal reports that the Senate Judiciary Committee has delayed today's vote on the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court.

The delay was expected as Republicans exercise their right for a one-week delay, commonly used by the minority party when voting on controversial issues. The vote will now take place July 28 where Sotomayor is expected to receive the nomination.

Democrats are anxious to vote, so that Sotomayor will be one step closer to filling her seat. The court has a finance case on Sept. 9 and the sooner she is confirmed, the more time she will have to prepare.

"We all know that Judge Sotomayor will be confirmed," Leahy said. "I hope that, when she is passed out of this committee, that there will be no delay on the floor because she will have a very, very few weeks after confirmation to move to Washington, set up her law clerks, set up her office, and prepare for a major, major case."
