Brett Kavanaugh is the 102th — or 114th — US Supreme Court Justice.

The US Senate voted 50-48 to appoint him to the Supreme Court.

The Daily Caller reported (emphases mine):

Justice Brett Kavanaugh has hired a black law clerk for his new chambers at the U.S. Supreme Court, matching Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s record of African-American clerkship hiring during her tenure on the nation’s highest judicial tribunal.

Since joining the high court in 1993, Ginsburg has hired over 100 law clerks, just one of whom is black.

Orrin Hatch of Utah asked Ginsburg if a court might reasonably conclude that a small business in a majority black city that hired 57 white employees and zero black employees over a period of years was discriminatory. Ginsburg dodged, before Hatch pointed out that was in fact her own record of clerkship hiring in her 13 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
