Senate Confirms Amy Coney Barrett
After a unanimous vote by the Judiciary Committee last week, last night the Senate confirmed Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett to become the 115th Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
Throughout Justice Barrett’s career, she has upheld the U.S. Constitution as written and judged against her personal beliefs to support the Constitution. The American Bar Association gave Barrett its highest rating, and she has an impressive track record across the legal profession—as a judge, professor, and litigator.
