Trump Supreme Court Pick Neil Gorsuch Takes Place On High Court Bench

Trump Supreme Court Pick Neil Gorsuch Takes Place On High Court Bench

He wasted little time before jumping in with questions in the first case Monday, which centered on a technical question over which court has jurisdiction to hear appeals of discrimination claims filed by federal employees. At issue was whether a federal employee who says he was a victim of discrimination should appeal his claims through the system for civil service appeals or before a federal district judge. But Gorsuch again seemed skeptical, suggesting that what Landau was in fact asking the justices to do was to "just continue to make it up". In his time on the Tenth Circuit Court, Gorsuch, then a judge, recused himself more than 1,000 times.

Gorsuch was a less enthusiastic participant in the next two arguments, but he again focused on the "plain language" of the statutes in his questioning.

One decision Justice Gorsuch did **not participate in is the high court's decision to not hear a case regarding the fedreal government's expedited removal of undocumented immigrants.

Lastly, for a shot biography, including affiliations and past positions, you can look at Justice Gorsuch's profile on Westlaw.

The Guardian noted: "Gorsuch spoke more during his first day on the bench than fellow judge Clarence Thomas has in a decade".

Katyal, who has argued numerous cases before the high court, represents the town of Chester.

And in what sounded like a tribute to his predecessor, the late Justice Antonin Scalia, Gorsuch seemed to stress the importance of sticking to the black-and-white words written by lawmakers.

Gorsuch's silence during Katyal's arguments is noteworthy, as the newest justice played the role of a happy antagonist throughout the rest of the day's hearings. He did not interrupt his colleagues and, numerous times, followed up on questions they had asked or attempted to circle back to their questions when a lawyer may have edged around a straight answer.

Justice Neil Gorsuch's first week on the Supreme Court bench features an important case about the separation of church and state that has its roots on a Midwestern church playground.

The U.S. government, which arguing as a friend of the court, proposed something of a compromise solution, saying that intervenors should not face an inquiry on their standing so long as they do nothing to alter the litigation they join. "Who wrote this statute?"

"Before we commence the business of the court this morning", Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said, "it gives me great pleasure on behalf of myself and my colleagues to welcome Justice Gorsuch as the 101st associate justice of this court". In the second case, involving who can intervene in a property rights case, Gorsuch asked no questions of the lawyer on one side, Neal Katyal, who had testified for him at his confirmation hearing. Above the Law reported that all eight have previously clerked for him and four have previously clerked for Supreme Court justices, including Alito, Sotomayor and Scalia.
