WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Obama has chosen federal Judge Sonia Sotomayor as his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Judge Sonia Sotomayor receives an honorary degree from New York's Pace University in 2003.
Sotomayor would be the first Hispanic and third female U.S. Supreme Court justice if confirmed.
