After the vote, and presuming all goes as expected, it's just a matter of paperwork passing hands until Judge Brett Kavanaugh could be sworn in. (Of course, neither the Supreme Court nor White House are saying anything about this until the vote is done.)
Here's information about the two oaths — a constitutional oath and judicial oath — that Kavanaugh would need to take before "execut[ing] the duties of their appointed office," as the court puts it:…
Gorsuch took the constitutional oath at the Supreme Court just three days after his confirmation, and the judicial oath was administered by Justice Kennedy at the White House.…
#SCOTUS is next set to hear arguments in cases on Tuesday, so, again, presuming today's vote goes as expected, Kavanaugh could be sitting on the bench as soon as 10 a.m. Tuesday.
Tuesday's two arguments both address how words in the Armed Career Criminal Act should be interpreted (a type of case often before the court in recent years). One of Wednesday's arguments, meanwhile, is about maritime law.
The final case of the week, the first argument on Wednesday, is the Trump administration's appeal of a 9th Circuit ruling over immigration detention rules. The ACLU's @WangCecillia is arguing in support of the decision below.…
Although I think it's most likely he would join ASAP, that would be tough ramping up like that immediately, so I can imagine a scenario in which a confirmed Kavanaugh would be sworn in on Wednesday afternoon or after, to begin preparing for the next sitting, which starts Oct. 29.
Kavanaugh is, indeed, joining the court ASAP. (To close the loop on the earlier, pre-vote thread about the timing of Kavanaugh joining the court.)
