For the first time in over a year, the Supreme Court is back at full capacity with nine justices. On Friday, the Senate triggered the "nuclear option" to confirm Gorsuch, and on Monday he was officially sworn in. That means it won't be long before his decisions can sway the previously divided four-four court.
When the court resumes its current term on April 17, they'll hear oral arguments on a church-state separation case, "Church of Columbia v. Pauley," out of Missouri. Other cases in the short-term involve gun rights and voting rights, as well as discussions on what appeals the court will hear from lower courts.
