Ketanji Brown Jackson grabs the spotlight in first Supreme Court session

Source: Politico

Simply by taking the bench, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson made history Monday, but as the Supreme Court kicked off its new term she also sent a message that she has no intent of being a shrinking violet despite her newcomer status.

Jackson waited less than eight minutes before jumping into the fray as her colleagues grappled with a dispute about the scope of federal agencies’ authority to regulate land use as a means of preventing water pollution.

In fact, the court’s newest justice politely dominated the questioning at the outset of Monday’s session.

“Why is it that your conception of this does not relate in any way to Congress’s primary objective?” Jackson asked Damien Schiff, a lawyer defending landowners seeking a narrow interpretation of federal power. “Do you dispute that the primary objective as stated in the statute … is that Congress cared about making sure that the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the nation’s waters was protected?”

She's a great choice.

2. She's awesome, but she will be shouting into a "dim"

Every conservative judge sucks. Can't wait wait for judge Cannon to be appointed by Desantis.


This country is fucking dead. And most deserve it.

3. Good.



I heard an audio clip of some of her questioning on the news radio here.

4. Intentions are telling.

I don’t believe she is “grabbing the spotlight” with the intent of being in the spotlight. She didn’t come to play. She doesn’t have time to play. We don’t have time.
