CAC Letter to Full Senate in Support of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Nomination to D.C. Circuit

Judge Jackson’s judicial record shows that she is an exceptional jurist, who has repeatedly demonstrated her commitment to the text, history, and values of the whole Constitution. She has authored hundreds of well-reasoned opinions that carefully apply Supreme Court and D.C. Circuit precedent to reach the result the law requires. Her opinions authored during her tenure as a judge on the District Court for the District of Columbia reflect her deep commitment to enforcing the Constitution’s text, structure, history, and values.

The Constitution and the American people require a federal judiciary that will respect the text, history, and values of the whole Constitution, and serves as an independent check on the elected branches of government. Judge Jackson’s record shows that she passes this test of constitutional fidelity with flying colors and that she also has a deep respect for precedent. The Constitutional Accountability Center supports Judge Jackson’s nomination and asks that the Senate vote to confirm her as a judge on the D.C. Circuit.
