Sotomayor Back in Hot Seat Tuesday

Ad Feedback

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor goes another round with the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

She is likely to face some tough questions from Republicans.

During Monday's confirmation hearing, she told senators that a judge's purpose is to apply the law, not make it.

Republicans will likely focus on what they view as her biases. They plan to raise doubts about her impartiality based on her 2001 comment that a "wise Latina's" experience could lead to better decisions than a white male's.

"I've reviewed your record and have concerns about your judicial philosophy," Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa., told Sotomayor. "For example, in one speech, you doubted that a judge could ever be truly impartial."

It is expected that Sotomayor will have no trouble being confirmed as the high court's first Hispanic justice.
