The nine Supreme Court justices took their first formal portrait including newly confirmed Justice Neil Gorsuch Thursday.
Gorsuch filled the vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia when the Senate confirmed Gorsuch in April. Senate Republicans lowered the vote threshold necessary to confirm high court justices to bypass Democratic obstruction amid a bitter partisan fight over how to fill the vacancy.
The justices are always seated by seniority; as the newest justice, Gorsuch stands in the back row, to Chief Justice John Robert's farthest left.
The full nine-justice court is in the last month of its term, and a flurry of decisions are expected in the coming weeks.
