Attorney General Merrick B. Garland released the following statement regarding the President’s nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to be Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court:
“President Biden has made an outstanding choice in selecting Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as his nominee to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. I have known Judge Jackson since she served as a federal public defender.
I also had the privilege to serve alongside Judge Jackson during her eight years as a district judge before she joined the D.C. Circuit.
I have witnessed firsthand her exceptional abilities as both a lawyer and a judge, her commitment to the rule of law and equal justice under law, and her generosity of spirit.
I commend President Biden for nominating Judge Jackson. I am confident that she will be an exemplary member of our nation’s highest court.”
