- Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed as the new Supreme Court judge following a vote in the deeply divided Senate. Republicans overpowered Democrats to install President Donald Trump’s nominee days before the election and secure a likely conservative court majority for years to come. Barrett is 48, and her lifetime appointment as the 115th justice will solidify the court's rightward tilt.
