Few El Pasoans know Sonia Sotomayor better than Ernie Rivera. They went to school together. Ernie Rivera is a paralegal in the district attorney's office. Back in the 1970s, he was a student at Princeton University and knew a young woman named Sonia Sotomayor. He's been following her career especially since she was mentioned as a possible supreme court nominee. He thinks she's an excellent choice.
