U.S Senate Confirms Neil Gorsuch as Supreme Court Justice
08 April 2017 Current Affairs: U.S President Trump’s nominee, Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, was confirmed for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, filling a 14-month vacancy after a dramatic Senate showdown that risked long-lasting repercussions to both institutions.

The Senate confirmed Gorsuch, 54-45, for the seat that had been open since the 2016 death of Justice Antonin Scalia. The Republican-led Senate had refused last year to consider President Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, fueling partisan rancor and Democratic opposition to Gorsuch.
