At any one time there are nine justices (judges) serving on the US Supreme Court unless there are seats that have been vacated and need to be filled. All supreme court justices are nominatedby the president and then confirmed by the US Senate. If a nominee is not confirmed by the Senate, the president must present nominees until one of them is confirmed. Because of the need for Senate confirmation, it is not quite accurate to say that these positions are appointed by anyone.
