On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Kindred Nursing Centers v. Clark, and First Daughter Ivanka Trump was present, with a prime view of the proceedings. Trump and 5-year-old daughter Arabella Kushner were invited as guests of Justice Anthony Kennedy, a Court spokesman told CNN, and sat in a VIP section.

It’s not uncommon for Justices to have guests attend arguments. Ivanka Trump reportedly met Justice Kennedy at the inaugural lunch about a month ago. Trump does not have a role in her father’s administration, although her husband, Jared Kushner, serves as an adviser.
The case before the court deals with arbitration agreements between a nursing home and residents’ representatives. Not exactly a fun time for a 5-year-old.
