WASHINGTON - Neil Gorsuch (GOR'-suhch) became the Supreme Court's newest member a year ago this Tuesday.

President Donald Trump's pick for the high court, its 113th justice, has now heard more than 60 cases on issues including gerrymandering, fees paid to unions and the privacy of certain cellphone records.

So far, Gorsuch has been what Republicans believed and hoped he would be — a reliably conservative vote.

Gorsuch has some special roles as the court's newest member. Those include taking notes and speaking last at the justices' private conferences as well as opening the door when anyone knocks. He also serves on the court's cafeteria committee.
