President Trump appoints Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court docket

President Donald Trump has selected Judge Amy Coney Barrett, currently serving on the Seventh Circuit in the United States Court of Appeals, to fill the Supreme Court seat previously held by the late Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Barrett was nominated for the Seventh Circuit by President Trump in 2017.

Barrett is a staunch Catholic, a favorite of religious law, and former clerk of the conservative judiciary Antonin Scalia. Her court record is pretty thin, having only been a judge for about three years, but this short record suggests that she will be a reliable Conservative if upheld in the Supreme Court.
