Statement From Attorney General Andrew Cuomo On President Obama's Nomination Of Judge Sonia Sotomayor To The Supreme Court

"Judge Sonia Sotomayor's journey from the Bronx to Supreme Court nominee is a true New York success story. She is a distinguished and thoughtful voice whose years of judicial expertise will be pivotal as the Supreme Court tackles historic issues vital to all Americans. Just as Justices Marshall and O'Connor broke down centuries-old barriers, Judge Sotomayor is a trailblazer whose accomplishments will serve as an inspiration for women, minorities, and all New Yorkers. I applaud President Obama for his exceptional choice and congratulate Judge Sotomayor."
