Martinez Meets With Supreme Court Nominee

Withholds decision on Sotomayor until after confirmation hearing

U.S. Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) today met with United States Supreme Court Associate Justice nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor. After the meeting, the senator made the following comments.

Senator Martinez said:

"She is not only a delightful person, but also a very deep thinker about judicial issues. As a longtime lawyer, I enjoyed the conversation about issues of jurisprudence, the role of the judiciary, and the role of a judge. She is very bright and very much someone who would fit in very well at the Supreme Court. I am going to withhold any ultimate determination about my position on the nominee until after the committee hearings. But I am very impressed with her, not only her personal qualities, but also her understanding of the role of the judiciary and the role of the judge."
