Amy Coney Barrett confirmed as US Supreme Court justice

Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed as the newest member of the US Supreme Court by a deeply divided Senate on Monday, as Republicans overpowered Democrats to install President Donald Trump’s nominee only days before the election. Ms Barrett’s confirmation will likely secure a conservative court majority for many years to come. Mr Trump’s choice to fill the vacancy of the late liberal icon Ruth Bader Ginsburg potentially opens a new era of rulings on issues including abortion, the Affordable Care Act and even the president’s own re-election bid.
