WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, Legal Director and Securities Specialist Stephen Hall released the following statement in response to the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court:
“We are pleased that the U.S. Senate has confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to join the U.S. Supreme Court, making history as the first woman of color to sit on the highest court in the nation. As we explained in our March 15th report, we are confident that Justice Jackson will strive to provide everyday American consumers and investors a fair hearing and a fighting chance when they are pitted against a powerful and too often predatory financial system that enriches itself at the expense of the real economy. Judge Jackson has the intellect, character, and experience to serve as an outstanding Supreme Court justice for years to come.”
