Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in as a U.S. Supreme Court justice on October 26, 2020, after the Senate voted 52-48 to confirm her nomination, giving the court a greater conservative majority. President Donald Trump nominated Barrett, who sits on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in September.
