President Trump Nominates Amy Coney Barrett For US Supreme Court
WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacant seat left on the Supreme Court after the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The announcement was held in the White House Rose Garden Saturday afternoon.
Barrett was joined by her husband and seven children.
The nomination came after Bader Ginsburg’s passing on Sept. 18. Ginsburg was nominated by former president Bill Clinton in 1993, and served on the court for 27 years. She had battled cancer twice.
Amy Coney Barrett has been as a circuit judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in South Bend, Indiana.
After attending law school at Notre Dame, Barrett spent two years as a judicial law clerk for Justice Antonin Scalia.
Barrett later returned to her alma mater, Notre Dame Law School, and worked as a professor.
The president’s nomination will now go to the U.S. Senate for confirmation hearings.
