Sotomayor to visit Penn for law school dedication

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is traveling to Philadelphia for some legal conversation and a ribbon-cutting.

    Prior to the ribbon-cutting, Sotomayor will join law school dean Michael Fitts for a talk at a campus auditorium.

    The event with Sotomayor caps a week of celebrations marking the dedication of Golkin Hall, named for alumni Perry and Donna Golkin.
