PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was in Philadelphia to speak to almost 1,000 guests at the Philadelphia Bar Association luncheon.
Justice Sotomayor received the Diversity Award from the Philadelphia Bar Association, which will be renamed after her. At an afternoon Q &A session with the Bar’s luncheon, Justice Sotomayor says the most pressing diversity issue today is inequality in education.
“Until we solve the structural problems that make an equal education available in public and private institutions, we will not be able to reach diversity in society.”

Justice Sotomayor almost swayed the crowd completely.
“I’d love for a rematch between the Yankees and the Phillies. It doesn’t matter what we do, we’re still going to beat you.”
