Amy Coney Barrett Is Now Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett

Judge Amy Coney Barrett is to be the next Supreme Court Justice, filling the seat left by the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Business Insider reports the Senate on Monday voted to confirm Coney Barrett along party lines in a 52-48 vote.

Only one Republican, US Sen.

Susan Collins of Maine, voted against Barrett's nomination.

The 48-year-old was confirmed just eight days before Election Day, and to vociferous opposition from Senate Democrats.
