Neil Gorsuch being sworn in as 113th Supreme Court justice

New US Supreme Court justice family has deep Wyoming ties

Gorsuch joined the Supreme Court on Monday morning as Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, for whom Gorsuch once clerked, administered the judicial oath of office in a formal Rose Garden ceremony. At the court chambers, Gorsuch took the same false oath that President Trump did at his inauguration, swearing to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and "bear true faith and allegiance to the same".

Yet amid the bitter cross-aisle bickering, a lighthearted moment emerged: Justice Elena Kagan explained to Gorsuch what it's like to be the most junior member of the highest court, where seniority is prized above all.

"Together we are in a process of reviewing and renewing and also rebuilding our country", Trump said.

"He will decide cases based not on his personal preferences, but based on a fair and objective reading of the law", he said.

Microsoft confirms Windows' NSA hacking loopholes have been patched
And, if the response of the security community is any indication, America's most famous whistleblower has reason to be alarmed. Some of the targeted Windows versions, such as Windows Vista and Windows 2008, have fallen out of support.

The confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court will be remembered for shattering political norms. At 49, the former federal appeals court judge from Colorado is the youngest justice to serve on the court in 25 years. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at the time refused to consider Garland's nomination because of the proximity to the presidential election.

Under McConnell's leadership, the Senate past year refused to consider Democratic former President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to replace Scalia, an appointment that would have tilted the court to the left for the first time in decades.

"I am humbled by the trust placed in me today", Gorsuch said. After the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016, President Obama nominated Chief Judge Merrick Garland to fill the seat.

On Thursday, the Senate voted on party lines to change those rules so that votes to confirm high court nominees could proceed without what previously was the 60 votes necessary to end debate on the nominations.

'We can't have this relationship with Russia' amid tensions on Syria
And to stand idly by when that convention is violated, that is what we had to take action on urgently in our own vital interest. For Russia, she said, "getting serious about peace starts by fulfilling its commitment to get chemical weapons out of Syria".

Gorsuch will be seated just in time to weigh in on a dispute over a Missouri law that bars church schools from getting public funds for general aid programs.

"All that he did" remains a sore spot for Democrats, whose nominee Senate Republicans stonewalled for an unprecedented 10 months while McConnell ran out the clock on Obama's presidency.

This is an undertaking that no judge in many decades has taken seriously, as the Supreme Court has moved steadily to the right, particularly on issues involving property rights and the privileges of the super-rich, where 9-0 rulings are increasingly common.

Start by making him take notes and answer the door at the justices' private meetings.

Sessions outlines border enforcement plan
Jon Feere, a former legal policy analyst for the Center for Immigration Studies, or CIS, has been hired as an adviser to Thomas D. On Tuesday, Sessions also announced they are hiring more immigration judges to help reduce the backlogs in immigration courts.

And it is possible the court may reveal that it is deadlocked on several cases it already has heard this term.
