Justice Sotomayor Gets $1.2 Million Advance for Her Memoir

The moment she won, I said it – some one needs to offer her a book deal for her memoir and someone did:

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor says she received nearly $1.2 million to write a memoir of her rise from a South Bronx housing project to the nation’s highest court. Sotomayor reported the payment for the as-yet untitled book from Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group in an annual report of personal finances, released Friday for the justice and her eight colleagues. The book will come out simultaneously in English and in Spanish, but no release date has been set.
