Religious Liberty Case Brings First Supreme Test for Gorsuch


Neil Gorsuch jumped into the fray after only a few minutes in his first day on the bench Monday, ultimately asking dozens.

At this point, Gorsuch again suggested the simple solution is to just read the words in the statute, but Gorsuch had a relatively novel idea of what a statute means when it says to apply one provision "subject to" another provision of the law.

As Gorsuch first emerged from behind the court's maroon velvet curtains with his colleagues, he seemed to pause for a moment to take in the scene.
