Alito Sworn In as Nation's 110th Supreme Court Justice

Samuel Alito was sworn in as the nation's 110th Supreme Court justice on Tuesday, less than two hours after the Senate voted 58-42 to confirm him to the nation's highest court.

"Sam Alito is a brilliant and fair-minded judge who strictly interprets the Constitution and laws and does not legislate from the bench. He is a man of deep character and integrity, and he will make all Americans proud as a justice on our highest court," President Bush said in a statement.

Chief Justice John Roberts administered the judicial oath and constitutional oath, by which Alito pledged equal justice for the rich and the poor and to uphold the Constitution, respectively. It was the first time the nation's new chief justice has ever administered the oaths to an associate justice.
Alito and his wife had watched the Senate floor vote with President Bush in the White House. Afterwards, Bush congratulated his nominee and left to host a luncheon of the top news anchors from the networks and cable TV channels for an off-the-record preview discussion of his Tuesday night State of the Union speech.
