WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the

be the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court.

“Today is a historic day. Judge Jackson is a brilliant and well-respected jurist with an 

impressive breadth of legal experience. She will be a great Supreme Court Justice.

“Judge Jackson has excelled during her tenure on the D.C. District Court and the

 influential D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, where she has shown an unwavering dedication 

to upholding the rule of law. She began her career as a clerk for Justice Stephen Breyer

 and followed in his footsteps on the U.S. Sentencing Commission, where she focused on ensuring that federal sentences were fair. She will also be the first federal public defender to serve on the U.S.

 Supreme Court, allowing her to bring invaluable courtroom experience to the bench.

 justice under the law and a strong moral compass. Her character, pragmatism, and 

perspective will make her an exceptional Justice.

“I commend the bipartisan group of Senators who voted to confirm Judge Jackson, 

and applaud President Biden for nominating the first Black woman to serve on the 

highest court of the land. As we celebrate her accomplishments, we are empowering 

young people of all different backgrounds who wish to serve our country at the highest

 level. This a moment of pride for our country.”
