The U.S. Senate has officially confirmed Amy Coney Barrett as an Associate Justice to the Supreme Court of the United States to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. First Liberty President, CEO, & Chief Counsel Kelly Shackelford was in Washington D.C. for the occasion, and commented:
America knows a good Supreme Court Justice when they see one, and today the U.S. Senate confirmed one. As she demonstrated during her confirmation hearing, few people are more qualified to fill a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court—or are more deeply committed to the principles of the Constitution—than Judge Barrett. She is a stellar choice by the President. Congratulations, Justice Barrett!
We applaud the Senate’s swift action to give the American people the full Supreme Court they want and deserve—as proven by the over 33,000 signatures we received from fellow friends of liberty like you urging the Senate to confirm Amy Coney Barrett.
