Trump Cheers Elevation Of Gorsuch To Supreme Court

18 April, 2017, 01:57 | Author: Eddie Kim

Gorsuch took the oath the first time in a private ceremony, followed by the public Rose Garden event that included family and supporters. All the current justices were in attendance, along with most of their spouses.

Gorsuch will replace the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away in February of 2016.

Neil Gorsuch was sworn in as a Supreme Court justice on Monday, filling the vacancy left on the nation's highest court by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia previous year, reports the Blaze. President Trump, who nominated Gorsuch on January 31, introduced Gorsuch to a supportive crowd in the Rose Garden. As it turns out, he'll get to work with the rest of the justices very soon. However, he could play a decisive role in an important freedom of religion case to be heard April 19. The outlet also noted that the court may reveal deadlocks on some cases it's already heard this term. - and in that case, the court would schedule rehearings for those instances so Gorsuch could break the ties.

After a partisan fight so deep it forced the Senate to go "nuclear" to confirm him, Neil Gorsuch was sworn in as the nation's newest Supreme Court justice on Monday. When Gorsuch couldn't attract 60 votes to end debate, Henderson said that the "failure by the Senate Republicans to secure 60 votes to move forward on President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court speaks to the flaws of Judge Gorsuch, not the rules of the Senate". The change allowed the Senate to hold a final vote with a simple majority. On Thursday, Democrats tried to block Gorsuch's nomination with a procedural filibuster. He blocked a confirmation hearing for Obama's nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, preserving the vacancy and giving conservative voters another reason to side with Trump in last year's election.

Trump admin. declines to brand China a currency manipulator
The decision was expected after President Donald Trump this week reversed himself and said China was not a currency manipulator. Before the elections, President Trump had vowed to label China a currency manipulator on Day One of his administration.


So where does Gorsuch stand on the spectrum of liberal to conservative, compared with the other active Supreme Court justices? It was the first time a sitting justice swore in a former clerk to join him as a colleague on the high court bench. Law firm partner. Justice Department official. Hailing from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit, he is the court's only Westerner.

CBS This Morning on Tuesday downgraded the lifetime confirmation of a Supreme Court justice to a bit story within a report on alleged feuding between White House aides. Those could include cases ranging from a fair housing dispute in Miami to a cross-border shooting on the Mexican border in Arizona. Consequently, the state turned down the church's application for a grant to cover the cost of resurfacing a playground with recycled scrap-tire material. The oral argument has been delayed for months, signifying a likely deadlock among the eight justices.

Among cases up for discussion is one in which gun activists are seeking to expand gun rights to include carrying concealed firearms in public.
