Kagan to become fourth woman to serve as Supreme Court justice


WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKOW) -- Her confirmation assured, Elena Kagan is on the brink of becoming the fourth woman ever to serve as a Supreme Court justice.

The Senate is set Thursday to confirm President Barack Obama's nominee, whose addition to the court will mark the first time three female justices have served at the same time.
