WASHINGTON, D.C. Independent Women’s Law Center (IWLC) today announced its opposition to the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to a lifetime seat on the United States Supreme Court.

Jennifer Braceras, director of Independent Women’s Law Center, said:  “Judge Jackson has impressive credentials and an upstanding personal reputation. But, while these qualities are necessary prerequisites for service on the Supreme Court, they are not sufficient to justify confirmation.

“To merit confirmation, a nominee must demonstrate a consistent commitment to the rule of law.

“Unfortunately, a review of Judge Jackson’s record indicates that she will be a results-oriented judge, unconstrained by any coherent principles or judicial philosophy. Because it is not clear that Judge Jackson will leave politics to the politicians, the Senate should vote ‘no’ on her confirmation.”
