Congratulations, Justice-To-Be Alito!


The Senate has just confirmed Judge Alito’s nomination to the Supreme Court by a 58-42 vote. Alito will be sworn in as Justice Alito in a private ceremony later today. A ceremonial swearing-in will occur at the White House tomorrow.

Upon the Senate’s confirmation of Judge Alito, Justice O’Connor’s resignation took effect. May she be blessed with a long and happy retirement.
