Ketanji Brown Jackson In Supreme Court

The Senate On Thursday Confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson To The Supreme Court, Making Her The 116th Justice — And The First Black Woman — To Serve On The Top U.S. Court.

The 53-47 Final Vote Tally Showed Bipartisan Support For Jackson, With Three Republicans Joining All Democrats To Elevate The 51-Year-Old Federal Judge To A Lifetime Appointment On The High Court.

“This Is A Great Moment For Judge Jackson, But It Is A Greater Moment For America As We Rise To A More Perfect Union,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., Said Before The Vote.

Jackson Is President Joe Biden’s First Supreme Court Nominee. She Will Replace Retiring Justice Stephen Breyer, 83, Who Was Confirmed To The Bench In 1994.

Vice President Kamala Harris Presided Over The Vote To Confirm Jackson. Harris Appeared Emotional As She Read The Vote Results, Which Drew Applause And Cheers From The Senate Floor.

In Addition To Jackson, Three Of Former President Donald Trump's Nominees Have Been Appointed To The Court. The Conservative Bloc Outnumbers The Court's Liberal Wing 6-3.

Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O'Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg And Amy Coney Barrett Are The Only Female Justices. No Black Woman Has Ever Sat On The Supreme Court.

A Tweet From Biden After The Vote Said Jackson's Confirmation Was "Historic For Our Country." Our Highest Court Now Reflects The Diversity Of America. I Was Honoured To Share This Moment With Her.

Jackson Will Also Become The Supreme Court's First Public Defender. Democrats Say Jackson's Experience Will Help Him Bring A New Perspective To The Historically Homogeneous Court.

Republicans Have Tried To Use Jackson's Public-Defender Experience Against Her, Accusing Her Of Sympathising With Past Clients' Views Or Actions, Including Detainees At Guantanamo Bay.

While Former Justice Robert Jackson “Left The Supreme Court To Go To Nuremberg & Prosecute The Case Against The Nazis,” Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., Said That “This Judge Jackson Might Defend Them.”

Last Month, Jackson Faced This And Other Criticisms During Two Exhausting Days Of Confirmation Hearings Before The Senate Judiciary Committee.
