Check it out:

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will help ring in the new year by pressing the ceremonial button to lower the famous Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball on Tuesday.

She’s also set to lead the final 60 second countdown, according to the co-organizers of the event, Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment.

A native New Yorker, Sotomayor was appointed to the high court in 2009, and she was the third woman and first Hispanic to become a Supreme Court justice.
