Trump chooses Gorsuch, Kavanaugh takes the other side on 2 of the 3 Supreme Court rulings on Tuesday
President Trump's two appointed, the US Supreme Court - Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh - were expected to help bring about a "conservative revolution" at the country's highest court, but found two out of three court rulings on Tuesday Gorsuch and Kavanaugh on opposite sides.
The two cases in which the judges did not agree related to an Indian tribe and Washington state taxes, and another to maritime law.
Gorsuch, who was nominated in 2017 by Trump to fill the seat Senate Republicans held open for more than a year after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016, the side of liberal judges in ruling that the Yakama Nation is not a state in Washington does have to pay fuel tax. He quoted an 1855 treaty that "made a handful of modest promises" to the tribe, including the right to market goods freely.
