Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson Confirmed
Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson has been confirmed and will be sworn in this summer as our newest Supreme Court Justice.
During her confirmation hearing, Judge Jackson demonstrated that she is unequivocally qualified for the Supreme Court. She showed incredible grace under pressure, as she thoughtfully and thoroughly answered questions from members of the Senate Judiciary Committee for more than 20 hours, showcasing the depth and breadth of her experience. Some Republican committee members tried to mischaracterize her record and views and were combative in their questioning, but throughout, Judge Jackson consistently exhibited the poise and temperament required of a Supreme Court justice.
President Biden fulfilled his campaign promise to nominate the first Black woman to the Court, and Judge Jackson is an outstanding pick. She is a brilliant legal mind and will be an exceptional Supreme Court justice.
