ADL Statement on the Nomination of Judge Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court

New York, NY, February 25, 2022 … ADL (Anti-Defamation League) today issued a statement in response to the president’s nomination of federal appellate court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO and National Director, issued the following statement:

We congratulate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on her historic nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.  If confirmed, she will undoubtedly bring an important new perspective to the work of the Court.

Now it is the Senate’s turn to fulfill its constitutional responsibility to thoroughly review Judge Jackson's record and qualifications. As this process moves forward, ADL will share with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee key issues they should explore with Judge Jackson, as we have done with past nominees. 

We trust and expect that this process will be conducted in the highest traditions and standards of our government – professionally, and with civility and respect.
