Senator Padilla meets with Supreme Court Nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Alex Padilla (D-Calif.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement after meeting with Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Biden’s nominee to the Supreme Court:

“Judge Jackson is an outstanding nominee with nearly a decade of judicial experience and exceptional legal credentials. I was pleased to have the opportunity to discuss her background and judicial philosophy, as well as the much-needed perspectives she would bring to the Supreme Court.

“I’m impressed by Judge Jackson’s commitment to the rule of law, her long record of public service, and her clear understanding of how the law affects people’s everyday lives. Her historic nomination to be the first Black woman and the first federal public defender on the Supreme Court will advance the fight for equal justice. I look forward to welcoming Judge Jackson to the Senate Judiciary Committee later this month.”
