It typically takes some time to get a sense how the court will be reshaped by a new justice. But Mr Gorsuch is diving into the job at an unusual time: days before the final two weeks of oral arguments of the term. With this highly compressed time frame, the new justice and his just-hired quartet of clerks have some late nights ahead.


What does the bold part suggest?

They have a lot of work to do.

They will be working from early morning until late in the evening every day for the next three weeks.

A 'late night' means going to bed later than usual or working late in the evening.

A large amount of work to do in a short period of time. More working hours per 24hr day.
