Ketanji Brown Jackson Confirmed as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice

Posted by John Rogers | Apr 11, 2022

Ketanji Brown Jackson Voted by U.S. Senate to Supreme Court

The U.S. Senate confirmed the appointment of Ketanji Brown Jackson as a justice to the United State Supreme Court – making her the 116th justice to serve on the high court. History has also been made because Justice Brown Jackson is the first African American woman to serve on the Supreme Court. Jackson is set to replace Justice Stephen Breyer who will be retiring.

The final vote was 53-47 showing bipartisan support for Jackson. Three Republicans joined the majority that included Senators Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said, “This is a great moment for Judge Jackson, but it is a greater moment for America as we rise to a more perfect union.”

Only five women have served on the Supreme Court – Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sandra Day O'Connor, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Amy Coney Barrett. Jackson is also the only justice to serve as a public defender. The democrats have stated that her experience is more evidence that Justice Jackson will being a new perspective to the historically homogeneous court.
