Kagan to celebrate with Obama, be sworn Saturday

WASHINGTON (AP) - It's all over but the celebrating and oath-taking for soon-to-be Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan.

Kagan is joining President Barack Obama at the White House on Friday to mark her confirmation as the nation's 112th justice. On Saturday, she'll be sworn in at the Supreme Court by Chief Justice John Roberts as the successor to retired Justice John Paul Stevens.

She won't be formally installed as a justice until Oct. 1 at the start of the court's new term.
