The Senate Judiciary Committee held its second day of hearings on the appointment of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court seat vacated by the retirement of Justice David Souter. Judge Sotomayor responded to questions on several issues including her judicial philosophy and temperament, the role of empathy in judicial decision-making, her rulings in immigration cases, abortion, the death penalty, and other issues. Senator Graham in his questioning challenged Judge Sotomayer on her judicial temperament, indicating that there were several lawyers who found her demeanor on the bench to be “bullying” at times.

In the first round of questioning, senators were allotted 30 minutes each. Part 5 continued the questioning beginning with questions from Senator Schumer and ending with Senator Durbin. close
