WASHINGTON – An upbeat Justice Neil Gorsuch wasted little time getting to work in his first public session Monday as the 113th member of the Supreme Court.

Sitting at the far right end of the nine-member bench, Gorsuch spent the morning hearing three oral arguments, each lasting about an hour. In his first case, considering a federal workplace discrimination claim, the newest justice was among the most active of questioners — unusual for the court “rookie.”

At the start of the morning session, Chief Justice John Roberts publicly acknowledged his new colleague in the crowded courtroom, wishing him a “long and happy career in our common calling.”

Gorsuch responded by thanking the other justices for giving him a “warm welcome.”

The 49-year-old Colorado native paid close attention to the arguments, sitting straight up and resting his hand occasionally on his chin.

    The right man at the right time.We are very lucky that McConnell and the Repubs stood their ground and didn’t allow the court to go liberal.That would have been a disaster for decades to come.

    If you don’t ask, don’t complain about the outcome.

    It sounds like he had a good start. Since this Court has the final word on most issues someone needs to ask questions. When the Court is deciding to override the expressed wishes of the people on the definition of marriage or legalize the murder of babies someone should ask questions.

    The Supreme Court has a history of making some really horrible decisions. Hopefully Justice Gorsuch will help keep that from happening in the future.

    They had to appoint him to find out where he really sand on things. As long as he doesn’t try to legislate from the bench it will be fine.

      Are you making reference to J. Roberts and his “tax” ruling? That WAS legislating from the bench!
