Celebrities from the law, politics and baseball are among those scheduled to testify next week during Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearing.

Testifying at the request of Republicans will be Frank Ricci, the lead plaintiff in the racial discrimination suit brought by New Haven, Conn., firefighters in which the U.S. Supreme Court last month overturned a 2nd Circuit panel that included Sotomayor. A lieutenant from the New Haven fire department will also testify, and among those joining them will be Linda Chavez, a former Reagan administration who is critical of affirmative action, and Sandy Froman, former president of the National Rifle Association.
