Lansing, MI - President Barack Obama's choice of Sonia Sotomayor for the open U.S. Supreme Court seat is getting praise from many, including the Michigan Association of Justice. The group's spokesman, Jesse Green, says that, while Sotomayor is being touted as the first Hispanic justice on the Supreme Court and third woman on the bench, it was more important to make a solid choice.

"When you make a judicial appointment of this magnitude as President Obama has done, it's to look at qualifications and credentials. I think those are the criteria he used for this judicial nomination and I think he did a good job."

Green believes Sotomayor has more than enough knowledge of the law and crucial experience as a federal judge.

"We also hope that she will bring a respect for the law, a respect for precedent, a sense of objectivity, and a willingness to look at the law and interpret the law as fairly as possible."

Republicans, who will decide whether to make a fight of her confirmation, said they want thorough hearings, but defeating Sotomayor would be difficult in the heavily Democratic Senate.
