U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sotomayor to visit Hawaii

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 05:44 p.m. HST, Jan 11, 2012

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor will be in Hawaii at the end of the month as part of the University of Hawaii at Manoa's jurist-in-residence law program.

During her visit, from Jan. 29 to Feb. 3, Sotomayor will teach classes at the William S. Richardson School of Law, judge a moot court practice, and meet with faculty and students throughout the week, according to a news release from the university. 

Sotomayor will also be the honored guest for an event hosted by the Hawaii State Bar Association, and will be the guest of honor at a breakfast with Hawaii Women Lawyers and Hawaii Women's Legal Foundation. 

The jurist-in-residence program brings Supreme Court justices to the Richardson school to meet with students, faculty and members of the state judiciary and Hawaii State Bar.

Sotomayor was nominated to become an associate justice by President Barack Obama in 2009.

Awesome! The strength of America lies in its ability to further empower the stronger sex. Sorry guys, it is women. Compare the success of the 1st world to that of the 3rd. Law and order and gender equality is the defining difference.

The same hideous racist who is so proud of having kept a group of qualified firefighters from being promoted - only and specifically because of their race - is coming to Hawaii? What was second prize: 2 race nuts coming to our islands? Awesome? She rocks? Maybe almost half as much as her fellow race kooks David Duke and Lester Maddox. Here's hoping there's lots of rain while she darkens our doorstep. She looks like a less attractive version of Ernest Borgnine in a dress.

conservatives hate when a judge actually looks to the constitution to render an opinion rather than looking to wall street or fox news.
