Barrett officially became the nation’s newest justice Tuesday when she took the judicial oath, administered by Chief Justice John Roberts, during a private ceremony.

Newly confirmed  Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett will use the chambers of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

A spokesperson also noted that Ginsburg’s five law clerks are now working for Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan, The Hill reported.

Barrett took the judicial oath on Tuesday administered by Chief Justice John Roberts.

Immediately after that, the newly-minted SCOTUS associate justice was asked by a county in Pennsylvania to recuse herself from participating in a dispute over the state’s mail-ballot extension.

On Monday, the Senate voted 52-48 to confirm Barrett after Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on Sept. 18. The 48-year-old Barrett is expected to cement a 6-3 conservative majority on the court.
