Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is President Joe Biden’s choice to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the US Supreme Court, fulfilling a campaign promise to nominate a black woman. A critic wrote that she is not highly regarded as a judge and has a striking record of reversals by the DC Circuit Court due to getting things ‘very wrong’.

The White House announced Friday morning that D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is President Joe Biden’s choice to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court, fulfilling a campaign promise to make the nation’s highest court more “diverse.”

“Judge Jackson is one of our nation’s brightest legal minds and has an unusual breadth of experience in our legal system, giving her the perspective to be an exceptional Justice,” the White House said in its announcement of the nomination.

Jackson is a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard University, cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School, and a former editor of the Harvard Law Review. Former President Barack Obama appointed her for Vice Chair of the U.S. Sentencing Commission in 2009 and the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in 2012, and Biden appointed her to her current judgeship last year. She previously worked as a federal public defender and as a law clerk for the outgoing Breyer, whose retirement was announced last month.

The announcement makes no mention of Biden’s pledge that his first Supreme Court nominee would be a black woman, but instead focuses on Jackson’s qualifications, and claims she “has a unique appreciation of how critical it is for the justice system to be fair and impartial,” and specifically highlights the fact that she has “multiple law enforcement officials in her family,” presumably to stunt suspicions of left-wing bias against police.

Undercutting that suggestion, however, is the fact that just days before this announcement, a coalition of “progressive” groups including MoveOn and Demand Justice wrote a letter to Biden stating that they wanted a nominee “with civil rights or public defense experience,” knowing Jackson was the only name on the president’s shortlist who qualified.

“Jackson is not highly regarded as a judge” and “has a striking record of reversals by the D.C. Circuit — including by liberal judges — in her high-profile rulings” for getting things “very wrong,” writes Ed Whelan of the Ethics & Public Policy Center. “Inquiries I have made recently of folks knowledgeable about her work confirm that she continues to have a middling reputation. This criticism, I’ll emphasize, is on grounds of quality, not ideology. Indeed, she is not regarded as ranking high among the ten or so district judges that President Obama appointed to the federal district bench in D.C.”
