WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the Supreme Court and Justice Brett Kavanaugh

Justice Brett Kavanaugh's first day on the Supreme Court bench are waiting in long lines outside the court. Police barricades are up in front of the court, but the few protesters on hand are congregating near the garage where the justices enter.

Protesters held signs that said, "We will not forget" and "We do not consent," following the acrimonious fight that culminated in Kavanaugh's 50-48 confirmation by the Senate on Saturday.

The new justice said Monday that his two daughters are expected to be in the courtroom Tuesday as their father and his new colleagues were hearing arguments.

The scene Tuesday morning contrasted sharply with a loud demonstration on Saturday, when chanting protesters climbed the normally off-limits Supreme Court steps and plaza.
