August 5th, 2010: The Supreme Court's 112th justice was confirmed by the United States Senate today.  Elena Kagan succeeded retired Justice John Paul Stevens. The President viewed Kagan’s confirmation as:

"…An affirmation of her character and her temperament; her open-mindedness and evenhandedness; her determination to hear all sides of every story and consider all possible arguments."
