Judge Gorsuch and his first day in THE SUPREME COURT OF THE USA- Beautiful view. Such a relief. Finally a good man, real patriot standing on a solid ground, with nothing in his “baggage” except HONOR, DIGNITY, AND JUSTICE!
Freshly sworn in Justice Neil Gorsuch was no wallflower during his first day hearing oral arguments at the Supreme Court Monday, questioning every attorney that appeared before the bench with the notable exception of one.
Gorsuch waited until after five of his fellow justices asked questions during the first of three cases of the day, which involved a federal employment discrimination issue.
When the plaintiff’s attorney Christopher Landau contended, “We’re not asking the court to break any new [legal] ground,” without missing a beat Gorsuch interjected, “No, just to continue to make it up,” the Washington Examiner reported.
The high court heard two other cases Monday, including one involving a zoning ordinance argued by former Obama administration solicitor general Neal Katyal.
Gorsuch had no questions for Katyal, who was one of the highest profile Democrats to support the justice’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
Katyal wrote a op-ed for the New York Times entitled, “Why Liberals Should Back Neil Gorsuch,” shortly after President Donald Trump made his announcement in January.In the piece, the attorney argued that Gorsuch is a straight shooter, who does not play favorites and “would help restore confidence in the rule of law.”
The two men served together on a federal court rules committee prior to Gorsuch’s elevation to the Supreme Court.
During his confirmation, the self-proclaimed originalist (like the late Justice Antonin Scalia) stated, “The Constitution doesn’t change; the world around us changes.”
Chief Justice John Roberts welcomed his new colleague to the bench on Monday, wishing the 49-year-old “a long and happy career.”
“Gorsuch delivered his questions and remarks with a persistent smile and drew laughs at times through the courtroom,” according to the Examiner.
After a lengthy round of questioning, he apologized to his fellow justices “for taking up so much time,” before sitting back in his high-backed chair and smiling.
Prior to coming to the Supreme Court, Gorsuch served for a decade on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.
Among the most prominent cases the high court will hear later this month will be Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia v. Pauley, which is a religious liberty suit coming out of Missouri.
The matter in question revolves around a Christian school being denied state funds that are available to other non-religious ones.
Court watchers believe Gorsuch’s presence may provide the deciding vote in favor of the school, in light of his decision in the famous Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius case at the 10th Circuit. In that suit, the judge determined Christian business owners’ First Amendment rights were violated by Obamacare’s contraception mandate requiring them to provide abortion-inducing drugs.
Other high profile cases in which Gorsuch’s vote may be decisive that are likely to make their way to the Supreme Court soon include Trump’s temporary immigration ban, as well cases involving gun rights, the religious liberty rights of Christian bakers not willing to participate in same-sex weddings, and voter ID laws.
I am really happy that Neil Gorsuch is going to show how valuable he is and help thi sbrave and patriotic administration to FIGHT AND DESTROY the rats in the judicial system.
