Sotomayor to be sworn in Saturday

From NBC's Pete Williams

Though Sonia Sotomayor was confirmed today by the Senate to become the next Supreme Court justice, she is technically not yet "Justice" Sotomayor. She won't be until she takes both the federal oath and the judicial oath on Saturday.

A White House official says Sonia Sotomayor will stay out of public view today.  She's at her chambers at the federal courthouse in New York.

Video: Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., officially announces that Sonia Sotomayor has been confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court in the Senate.

She'll be sworn in on Saturday at the Supreme Court by Chief Justice Roberts.  (That event will be available for TV pool coverage, which will be a first for the court.)

Justice Sotomayor will be the court's second-youngest member, at age 55. Only Roberts, who turned 54 in January, is younger.

*** UPDATE *** Here's what the Supreme Court now says about the swearing in:

Sotomayor will be sworn in as the 111th Justice of the Supreme Court on Saturday, Aug. 8, at 11 a.m. at the Supreme Court of the United States. Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., will first administer the Constitutional Oath in a private ceremony in the Justices' Conference Room attended by members of the Sotomayor family. The Chief Justice will then administer the Judicial Oath in the East Conference Room before a small gathering of Judge Sotomayor's family and friends.

The Judicial Oath ceremony in the East Conference Room will be open to pool coverage. There will be no opportunity for interviews or questions at the ceremony.

A formal investiture ceremony will take place on Tuesday, September 8, at 2 p.m. at a special sitting of the Court in the Courtroom.
