Neil Gorsuch Sworn in as Supreme Court Justice

Judge Neil Gorsuch became Justice Neil Gorsuch today as he was sworn in as a Supreme Court Justice following a Senate confirmation vote on Friday. . . .

Justice Gorsuch was sworn in during a private ceremony and he is expected to take the judicial oath in public at the White House later today.

Justice Gorsuch fills the seat of the late pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia. The Supreme Court has been without nine justices for over a year. Justice Gorsuch is expected to be seated on the Supreme Court before it begins its next session of oral arguments on April 17th.

Senators voted 54-45 for Gorsuch with a few Democrats voting with all Republicans for his nomination. Manchin of West Virginia, Donnelly of Indiana, and Heitkamp of North Dakota joined Republicans. . . .

National Right to Life called the vote the “the capstone on the yesterday’s landmark victory, when united Senate Republicans put an end to the ability of Senate Democrats to utilize the filibuster to deny confirmation to Supreme Court nominees of Republican presidents.”  . . . Read More
