Protesters demonstrate on first day with newly sworn in Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the court at the Supreme Court in Washington, U.S., October 9, 2018.
Kavanaugh was confirmed 50-48 Saturday, the closest vote to confirm a justice since 1881, and has had a busy three days since then. Ford told lawmakers she was "100 percent" certain Kavanaugh attacked her, but Kavanaugh forcefully denied he had assaulted her or any other woman.
And on Monday evening he was the guest of honor at a ceremonial swearing-in at the White House.
Democrats had fought tooth and nail to stop Kavanaugh´s candidacy, claiming that the accomplished, conservative-minded judge was not suited to the Supreme Court. Appointed by President Donald Trump, Kavanaugh's confirmation cemented a conservative majority on the court that could last for years.
"Justice Kavanaugh will serve our country admirably on the court because he understands that the very best way to protect human dignity and freedom is by respecting and enforcing the limits on government power contained in our Constitution", said Leonard Leo, executive vice president of the Federalist Society, who has played a critical role in the selection of conservative judges for the Trump White House.
"It gives me great pleasure, on behalf of myself and my colleagues, to welcome Justice Kavanaugh to the Court", said Chief Justice John Roberts, in a brief bench statement at the start of the session.
As Trump, the other eight court justices and a number of Republican senators crucial to the confirmation process watched, retired Justice Anthony Kennedy administered the judicial oath to Kavanaugh.
Any technical arguments are likely to be overshadowed by Kavanaugh's first public appearance wearing the traditional black robe donned by Supreme Court justices. Kavanaugh will hear his first cases on Tuesday, when the court convenes at 10 a.m.
"Say it loud, and say it clear: Kavanaugh's not welcome here!" they chanted, dressed in long red robes and white hats in temperatures slated to reach 80 degrees.
Kavanaugh's allies predicted the partisan air around his confirmation would fade.
"It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people that are evil". Only Samuel Alito and Stephen Breyer participated in White House events after they had been sworn in and begun work as justices, according to the court's records on the current crop of justices.
The latest justice to join the bench, Neil Gorsuch, spoke past year during his swearing-in at the White House Rose Garden.
