Shelby Statement on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today made the following statement regarding the President’s nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:


“As in any Supreme Court confirmation process, the Senate must hold a fair and thorough review of Judge Jackson’s qualifications.  Throughout my career, I have supported judges who respect our Constitution and interpret the law without prejudice.  A lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest Court will impact our country for generations and should be rigorously evaluated.  I look forward to meeting with Judge Jackson to further review her judicial philosophy, legal views, and commitment to our Constitution.”
