Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch has landed himself in hot waters after he failed to disclose the fact that the head of a major law firm had bought a 40-acre property he co-owned in Granby, Colorado.

Gorsuch owned the property with two other individuals. He held a 20 percent stake in the property. Nine days after his seat on the Supreme Court was confirmed by the Senate Brian Duffy, the CEO of Greenberg Traurig, one of the nation’s biggest law firms bought Gorsuch’s Granby property.

The 3000-square-foot house on the Colorado River was put under contract by Duffy on April 16, 2017, according to real estate records. Duffy and his wife closed on the house a month later, with a whopping $1.825 million. Gorsuch reportedly made between $250,001 and $500,000 from the sale, according to his federal disclosure forms. However, when it comes to disclosing who bought the property, that box was left empty.
