Judicial Watch Statement on Obama's Nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the United States Supreme Court

/Standard Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton issued the following statement today in response to Barack Obama's decision to nominate Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the United States Supreme Court:

"Barack Obama is on record saying he favors judges
who will let their 'empathy' or bias for certain
individuals color their decision-making. If Judge
Sotomayor shares Obama's activist judicial
philosophy, U.S. Senators who want to protect the
Constitution will have no choice but to oppose her

"Americans want the Supreme Court to make
decisions based on the Constitution and not on some
lawless standard that puts identity politics before the
law. There is no room on the Supreme Court for
someone who will put her feeling and politics above
the rule of law."
