On the day Justice Neil Gorsuch receives the traditional welcome onto the Supreme Court, it doesn't seem to early to tell that the conservative "comes across as an energetic jurist in the Scalia mold," Ken Starr writes in a column for The Wall Street Journal.

"On the substance, Justice Gorsuch seems committed to honoring Antonin Scalia's legacy," wrote Starr, the former federal judge, independent counsel and president of Baylor University.

Gorsuch delves into the text of the constitution to find the rule of law, ever the originalist Scalia was, Starr says.

"Statutory interpretation provides daily grist for the judicial mill, but the stakes are far higher in interpreting the Constitution. To the textualist school, 'making it up' is the ultimate judicial sin," Starr writes.

"Antonin Scalia changed the way mainstream judges think about their role in a representative democracy. On this investiture day, the Scalia tradition boasts a worthy inheritor," Starr concluded.
