Comment On The ABA’s Rating Of Judge Sonia Sotomayor

“The American Bar Association’s unanimous, well-qualified rating of Judge Sotomayor is further evidence of the outstanding experience she will bring to the Supreme Court.  The ABA’s rating – an evaluation of integrity, professional competence, and judicial temperament – should eliminate the doubts of naysayers who have questioned Judge Sotomayor’s disposition on the bench.  The confidential, peer-review evaluations of these professional qualifications have resulted in the ABA’s highest rating for Judge Sotomayor.  When the Judiciary Committee hearings to consider this nomination begin next week, Americans will hear from Judge Sotomayor herself, and I have the utmost confidence they will agree with the American Bar Association’s review of her qualifications.”
