Kagan Confirmed as Next Supreme Court Justice

Ad Feedback

The Senate has given final confirmation for Elena Kagan to become the 112th Supreme Court justice.

Five Republicans and all but one Democrat voted in support of Kagan. The final tally was 63-37.

Kagan will succeed retired Justice John Paul Stevens, putting three women in the nation's highest court.

Although she has no court experience, Republicans criticized the former Harvard Law School dean for her liberal views -- and feared that if nominated, she may rule that way as well.

Supportive Democrats portrayed Kagan as a a highly qualified legal scholar.

Kagan's appointment will mark the first time three female justices will served together.
