Neil Gorsuch had a surprise from Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg waiting for him when he joined the Supreme Court in 2017, CNN is reporting.

It all started years ago when Gorsuch was a clerk for Justice Byron White and later Justice Anthony Kennedy. He was given the responsibility of organizing a clerk's manual -- a set of notes in a binder aimed at helping future clerks know their responsibilities.

White later handed it over to Ginsburg to help her organize her office.

"Well, fast forward about 25 years or whatever it was," Gorsuch told CNN in an interview, "in my first week on the court, what do I receive?"

"A note in my inbox along with a big binder saying, 'You may recognize some of this. I hope I've improved it a little bit since you've last seen it,'" Ginsburg wrote, according to Gorsuch.

In his new book, “A Republic, If You Can Keep It,” Gorsuch details some of the steps taken by justices to preserve collegiality including lunches where discussions about court business are forbidden.
