Sotomayor's Pledges 'Fidelity to the Law'

But in early July, Craig wrote a letter to Alabama Sen. Sessions saying that PRLDEF is a "highly respected civil rights legal fund" that has worked with groups such as the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund for equal opportunity.

A spokesperson for LatinoJustice says that in her role serving in a voluntary capacity Sotomayor never directed which legal issues the group would target.

The White House issued a statement saying the committee should not link Sotomayor with every document produced during her time serving on the board: "Documents that Judge Sotomayor did not write, review, or approve -- many of them more than two decades old -- are irrelevant to her nomination. The Senate should judge her on her own record -- especially her judicial record -- not on briefs that other lawyers wrote 20 years ago."
