Judge Neil Gorsuch to be sworn in as Supreme Court Justice

President Trump's Supreme Court appointee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, will be sworn into his lifetime role on the court in a Rose Garden ceremony Monday at 11 a.m. ET.

Gorsuch, 49, will restore the nine-seat court to full strength for the first time since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016 and following the Senate's subsequent refusal to consider former President Barack Obama's nominee, Judge Merrick Garland.

Gorsuch was confirmed by the Senate on Friday 54-45 and he will participate in the court's next round of oral arguments, beginning April 17.
