MALDEF site to provide live streaming of Sotomayor confirmation hearings

LatinaLista — Next Monday, July 13, at 10 a.m., EST the first confirmation hearing of Judge Sonia Sotomayor will get underway with Sotomayor making her opening remarks. The following day will begin the review of her record.

Judge Sonia Sotomayor
Though CNN and C-SPAN will be dedicating some airtime to this historic event and the Associated Press has revealed they will be "tweeting" what's going on behind the scenes at the hearing, the Latino community also wanted to ensure there would be non-stop coverage.
For that reason, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund's Sotomayor for Justice web site will be live streaming the historic hearings.
Since this is a First for the Latino community and people want to share in the experience, watch parties are beginning to form.
It's reported that in Los Angeles the Raben Group, LLC, Hispanic National Bar Association, Southern California Region and the Mexican American Bar Association of Los Angeles County are inviting the public to view the first official day of the Senate confirmation hearings -- light refreshments will even be served!
But who can eat with all the excitement?
