US Senate voted to confirm Supreme Court nomination of Samuel Alito

On January 31, 2006, the US Senate voted 58-42 to approve the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito of the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit to serve as an Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court. Alito replaced Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who had announced her retirement the previous July. The confirmation followed an attempted filibuster by Democratic Senators opposing his nomination.
