WITNESSES REAFFIRM JUDGE JACKSON’S EXTRAORDINARY CREDENTIALS AND CHARACTER DURING FINAL DAY OF HEARINGS
American Bar Association representatives: Judge Jackson is “brilliant,” “beyond reproach,” “impeccable” and “A-plus”
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Building Back Together Executive Director Danielle Melfi released the following statement on the final day of Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings:
“Since President Biden announced he was nominating Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve on the Supreme Court one month ago, we’ve learned about her extensive qualifications and background from the President, members of the legal community, and countless others who have come out in support of her nomination – from dozens of former state attorneys general, to her fellow Supreme Court clerks, to prominent Republican judges, lawyers, and public servants across the country. Today, we heard directly from witnesses testifying to her excellence and impartiality. These experts — and the vast majority of Americans — agree that Judge Jackson is eminently qualified to serve on the Supreme Court.
“Most importantly, during these hearings, we’ve had the opportunity to hear from Judge Jackson herself. Judge Jackson has outlined her approach to the law and underscored her commitment to the Constitution, clearly illustrating the kind of Supreme Court justice she will be. Her grace under pressure, even in the face of inappropriate and discredited lines of attack, shone through. She is a top jurist with strong experience on the federal bench and across the legal profession – and soon, she will make history as the first Black woman to serve on our nation’s highest court. Judge Jackson has been confirmed on a bipartisan basis by the Senate three times before – most recently last year – and we look forward to seeing her confirmed as our next Supreme Court justice without delay.”
