Houston, Texas (February 25, 2022)— Today President Joe Biden officially announced the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court.

Harris County Attorney Christian D. Menefee issued the following statement:

“I’m excited and elated that Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson has been nominated to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States. This announcement is historic and important. If confirmed, she will make history as the first Black woman to be appointed to our nation’s highest court – a momentous milestone for this country.

Judge Jackson is abundantly qualified and will make an excellent justice. Her appointment would not only break the mold as the first Black woman, but as the first public defender since Thurgood Marshall—a perspective much needed on this Court. I’m rooting for her, and every member of the Senate should as well.”
