WASHINGTON, May 29 (UPI) -- A disclosure form released by Sonia Sotomayor, President Barack Obama's U.S. Supreme Court pick, revealed her only investment income is bank account interest.

The document released by Sotomayor, a New York federal appeals judge who was tapped Tuesday to replace retiring Justice David Souter, indicates that her net worth may be less than the average for the federal judiciary, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

The form revealed Sotomayor's only investment income for 2008 was $1,000 or less in interest from checking and savings accounts totaling no more than $65,000.

The document also revealed Sotomayor won an $8,283 jackpot at a Florida casino she was visiting with her mother Nov. 23, but the White House declined to specify the casino or the game the judge was playing.

Sotomayor earned $179,500 annually as an appellate judge and the disclosure form listed two other sources of non-investment income; the casino winnings and $25,830 for lecturing at Columbia University.
