Commentary: What We Don’t Know About Sotomayor
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

After an intense grilling by members of Congress and saturated media coverage of her personal life story, new Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor can rightly be described as a celebrity. From her humble beginnings being raised by a hard-working single mother, to her battle with diabetes, to her “wise Latina” comments, Sotomayor has been thoroughly vetted by the media. Or so it would seem.

This week, Associate Justice Sotomayor heard her first case on the Supreme Court. But actually there’s a lot we don’t know about Sotomayor or issues of Latinos and the law despite the intense national scrutiny recently. Commentator Michelle Garcia faults the media for this fact.
