Sotomayor questionnaire delivered to Senate

WASHINGTON (CNN) – A lengthy questionnaire filled out by Judge Sonia Sotomayor was delivered to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday in preparation for Sotomayor's expected U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearing this summer.

The questionnaire, required of all federal judicial nominees, covers a range of topics, including a summary of an individual's net worth and legal career.

See the completed questionnaire here and here.

Sotomayor currently has assets worth a total of almost $1.16 million, including a home valued at almost $1 million, according to her responses, which were posted online by the Judiciary Committee.

Her financial liabilities total almost $420,000, including a mortgage totaling slightly less than $382,000, she wrote.

The questionnaire was delivered as Sotomayor spent her third straight day on Capitol Hill, meeting with senators who will ultimately decide whether she will become the first Hispanic to sit on the high court.

It arrived nine days after Sotomayor's nomination - the fastest completion in recent history, according to the administration.

Chief Justice John Roberts' questionnaire was delivered 13 days after his July 2005 nomination, while Justice Samuel Alito's was delivered 30 days after Alito was tapped in November of 2005, the White House noted.

    I think the fact that the President picked such a well qualified person for the SCOTUS nomination is really getting under the republicans skin. Who did you expect a law professor to nominate....Harriet Myers?

    Puleeeease this is a joke The questionaire was completed by 5 lawyers from the Obama Administration. Satomayor is right now being taught how NOT to answer any questions directly and how NOT to give any substantive answers that could give rise to real questions. This hearing process is a sham -– and not the way our founding fathers envisioned the separation of powers -–
