NEW YORK: US Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor will take centre stage among about 1 million revellers in New York's Times Square to usher in 2014 by pressing the button to lower the countdown ball.
New York native Sotomayor will join pop star Lady Gaga, boxing great Muhammad Ali and Bill and Hillary Clinton among those who have had the honour of starting the ball drop.
