By Diego Graglia, FI2W web editor

While the whole nation will be watching to see if New York-born judge Sonia Sotomayor becomes the third woman and first Latina on the U.S. Supreme Court, Hispanics will be paying special attention to Sotomayor’s Senate confirmation hearings set to begin Monday.

“It is expected the hearings will send the first Hispanic woman to the highest American court,” wrote Univision.com on Sunday.

“Despite the importance of an event that happens few times throughout the country’s history, tempers are calmer than could be expected,” wrote Los Angeles newspaper La Opinión.
