On Monday America held a brief silence as a new Supreme court justice was sworn in. The new Justice was hotly debated, only getting a slight majority before republicans used the “Nuclear Option” (A procedure where the senate can override a rule with a simple majority of 51 instead of a super majority of 60).

Justice Gorsuch identifies as a strict originalist, the belief that the constitution should be interpreted as is, he was named to the the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in 2006.
He taught law and ethics and antitrust law at Colorado law school, and graduated cum lade from Harvard.

He was originally nominated by George W. Bush back in May of 2006, only to be later nominated by Donald Trump again earlier this year.
Neil Gorsuch is one of the youngest Supreme Court justices to date. He is now the 113th supreme court justice to have been sworn in.
