Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed as the next supreme court judge.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Amy Coney Barrett was appointed as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Amy Coney Barrett was appointed as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.The Senate voted to confirm President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Barrett secured a 6-to-3 conservative majority on the nation’s highest court on October 26. At 48, Judge Barrett becomes the Supreme Court's youngest justice. Supreme Court justices take two oaths before beginning their job - the constitutional oath and the judicial oath. During the swearing-in ceremony held at the White House, Barrett said she would do her job without any fear or favor and independently of both the political branches and of her own preferences. President Trump praised Barrett by saying that she is one of our nation's most brilliant legal scholars and she would make an outstanding justice on the highest court in our land. The new justice is the third appointed by the Republican president, after Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and Brett Kavanaugh in 2018. Only one Republican, Senator Susan Collins, voted against the president's nominee.

Barrett, a federal appeals judge, would fill the seat left vacant by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on September 18, 2020.
