"Hillary: The Movie" Waits for Sotomayor

A big week ahead for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

She'll hear her first case on the high court. The justices are coming back almost a month early to take up a fascinating free-speech case.

It all started with a sharply critical movie that a conservative group made about Hillary Clinton's run for president.

The supreme court heard arguments about whether the movie amounted to a campaign ad. That's leading to a ruling on whether there should be any limits on campaign spending by corporations and labor unions.

Attorney Tanya Acker helped prepare cases for the supreme court when she worked at the justice department during the Clinton administration. She talks to CNN's Fredricka Whitfield.

    I honestly think the "Hillary" movie is appalling and shocking, spend the GOP money the right way.

    The Hillary movie is more that appalling and shocking. It is a disgrace and should be banned RIGHT NOW. I am not a big fan of Hillary Clinton, but, she would have made one hell-of-a-president, she would have had so much guideness from hubby Bill and we would not have to see Obama's angry looking face so much-I detest looking at him and know there are others out there who feel the same way.
