Read the Sotomayor questionnaire online

Prior to being confirmed by the Senate, all judicial nominees must fill out a lengthy questionnaire that Senators use to learn about a prospective federal judge. The Senate Committee on the Judiciary has just released the questionnaire filled out by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.

Questions include previous employment, previous schooling, bar association memberships, events attended, and others. It also includes speeches she has given and press clippings about her.

According to the Sunlight Foundation this is only the second time the Senate has posted the entire questionnaire online.
