RELEASE: CAC Welcomes Biden Federal Court Nominations
WASHINGTON – On President Biden’s nomination of eleven nominees to vacancies on the federal courts, including Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Constitutional Accountability Center President Elizabeth Wydra issued the following statement:
CAC applauds the nomination of Judge Jackson to the D.C. Circuit as part of a broadly diverse slate of nominees to the federal bench. Today’s announcement is a strong indication that President Biden is taking seriously his commitment to nominate individuals not only with backgrounds in public defense and other public interest law practices, but also—and especially—women and people of color. We look forward to examining Judge Jackson’s record, and those of other nominees in this slate, and we await their answers to the Senate Judiciary Committee in their confirmation hearings.
