Home / Judge Neil Gorsuch sworn in as newest Justice of the SCOTUS

Justice Gorsuch brings balance to the Supreme Court and restores it to 9 justices.  Justice Neil Gorsuch sworn in on April 10, 2017 to the SCOTUS.

President Trump’s biggest accomplishment of his first one hundred days is by far having his pick for the Supreme Court of the United States, Judge Neil Gorsuch of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals approved and sworn in.  Gorsuch fills a vacancy left open by the sudden passing of the late conservative justice, the great Antonin Scalia.  Gorsuch looks to adjudicate several high-profile cases on a docket that is sure to be full of interesting cases that affect millions of Americans.

Gorsuch, 49, is the youngest Justice on the court and looks on the bench for decades to come.

 

Speculation now swirls about the possibility of another Trump appointment to the Supreme Court.  Justice Kennedy (above) is 80 and may step aside during the current administration.  There is always the possibility of other Justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg seat becoming vacant in the near future.  Constitutional conservatives and Americans of all walks of of political life will now await and see what Judge Gorsuch’s putative Supreme Court jurisprudence will be like.    How will he rule on important issues facing Americans, in employment, health care, regulations, environmental protections, religious liberties, gun-control, abortion, individual privacy rights and net neutrality to name a few.   We can only wait and see what happens under the new SCOTUS.
