AP sources: Group sends Sotomayor docs to Senate

Senate aides say a Puerto Rican legal advocacy group has sent a trove of documents on Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor's past to the panel considering her nomination.
Judiciary Committee aides say LatinoJustice PRLDEF sent the committee hundreds of pages of new material from Sotomayor's 12 years on the group's board. The documents were not immediately available. The aides spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to discuss them publicly.
Republicans and conservative groups have criticized Sotomayor's involvement with the organization and called it radical.
A Republican Judiciary aide said the documents detail the organization's opposition to failed high court nominee Robert Bork and its ties to the community-activist group ACORN.
