Sotomayor Status Report

Judge Sotomayor’s nomination is nominally scheduled for committee action tomorrow, but Republicans will exercise their right to hold over the nomination—which, as I’m informed, means that committee action would not be earlier than Friday and would probably not be until early next week. 

In the meantime, Sotomayor has plenty of written questions to answer.  I’ve received questions submitted by Senators Sessions, Grassley, Cornyn, and Coburn, and there may be others as well.
