In what is seen as an expected move, Justice Anthony Kennedy will administer the judicial oath to newly confirmed Supreme Court associate justice Neil Gorsuch, who worked for him as a law clerk in the early 1990s.
Kennedy will perform the task at a public ceremony Monday in the Rose Garden, Fox News reported in a tweet Saturday:
Justice Kennedy also administered the oath of office when Gorsuch joined the Denver appeals court.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer confirmed as much in a tweet of his own:

Social media users reacted with plenty of cheer… and gratitude to President Donald Trump for nominating Gorsuch.
Now if someone could just keep Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg awake!
