He was nominated by President George W. Bush in 2006 and was confirmed by the senate in a voice, according to abcnews.go.com.

Gorsuch stated after taking the oath on Monday, April 10, 2017, “To the American people, I am humbled by the trust placed in me today, I will never forget to whom much is given too much will be expected, and I promise you that I will do all my powers permit to be a faithful servant of the Constitution and laws of this great nation.” During the ceremony, President Donald Trump labeled Gorsuch, “A man of unmatched qualification and deeply devoted to the Constitution.” He stated towards Neil Gorsuch, “I have no doubt you will rise to the occasion, and the decisions you will make will protect our Constitution today and for many generations of Americans to come,” reported foxnews.com.
