"Following President Trump's nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, Senators have reportedly begun meeting with the nominee who could succeed Justice Antonin Scalia, as part of the initial phases of determining whether to provide 'Advice and Consent' to the nomination. According to recent news reports, the Senate is anticipated to hold hearings and ultimately vote on Judge Gorsuch's nomination in the coming weeks and months. Hearings on nominees to the Supreme Court have historically considered the nominee's previous work experience, with particular focus on any rulings the nominee authored as a judge."
