Washington, D.C. – On this third day of confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, People For the American Way President Ben Jealous released the following statement:
“As she has done throughout this hearing, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson showed again today why she is an outstanding choice for the Supreme Court. Judge Jackson is a nominee with a wealth of experience who brings deep thoughtfulness and discernment to every case, and grace and dignity to everything she does. This was clear even as some senators continued to create distractions and misrepresent her record, an effort that clearly failed. We look forward to Judge Jackson’s confirmation and to the addition of her great intellect, integrity, and experience to the Court.”
