(Bloomberg) -- Brett Kavanaugh will be sworn in as associate justice of the Supreme Court later today, according to a statement from the high court, after the U.S. Senate confirmed President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace the retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Chief Justice John Roberts will administer the constitutional oath, and Kennedy will administer the judicial oath in what the court says will be a private ceremony. That will let Kavanaugh begin work immediately and start hearing cases this week.
