Thousands of people turned out last weekend for a chance to meet U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic ever appointed to the High Court, and one of only four women to sit on the bench. Sotomayor was in Los Angeles as part of national tour to promote her new book, “My Beloved World,” the story of her path from the tenements of the Bronx to the U.S. Supreme Court.
