Background on US Supreme Court Nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson

The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. has provided some background information about Ketanji Brown Jackson, the American President's nominee to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court of the United States:

"On January 27, 2022, Justice Stephen Breyer announced his intention to retire. In a letter to the President (PDF), Justice Breyer wrote that he intended for his retirement 'to take effect when the Court rises for the summer recess this year (typically late June or early July) assuming that by then my successor has been nominated and confirmed.' President Biden announced his 'intent to nominate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court' on February 25, 2022. Judge Jackson's nomination was President BIden's first U.S. Supreme Court nomination; she is the first Black woman to be nominated to the high court. The Senate Judiciary Committee will soon begin its hearings process for judicial nominees, and this page will be updated as more information becomes available. In the meantime, researchers may review the resources below to learn about Judge Jackson, including a brief biography, articles by and about her, judicial opinions she has authored, congressional hearings testimony, and more."
