THE COURT MOVES RIGHT:

Sotomayor Confirmed by Senate, 68-31 (CHARLIE SAVAGE, 8/06/09, NY Times)

Voting largely along party lines, the Senate on Thursday confirmed Judge Sonia Sotomayor as the 111th justice of the Supreme Court. She will be the first Hispanic and the third woman to serve on the court.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. was expected to administer the oath of office to Judge Sotomayor, 55, in the next few days, with a formal ceremony likely in September.
