Sotomayor to drop the ball in Times square

  • Sonia Sotomayor is the one chosen to lead the most-watched New Year's Eve event in the world. She's going to press the button and lower the ball in Times Square in order to begin the 60-second countdown before midnight. 

    The president of the Times Square Alliance said the Supreme Court justice is "an inspiration to many, and it is a privilege to welcome her to our celebration to ring in 2014."

    Billions of people will watch the Times Square party on television and it will be hosted by Anderson Cooper.
