Senator Tommy Tuberville meets with Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson


WASHINGTON, DC (WIAT) – Ahead of her possible confirmation in the nation’s highest court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson met with one of Alabama’s senators.

On Tuesday, Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, met with Jackson at his office in Washington, D.C. Tuberville’s meeting with Jackson comes as the judge is being considered for the Supreme Court.

“I had a productive meeting with Judge Jackson,” Tuberville said in a statement. “We discussed many issues important to Alabamians, including the importance of upholding the rule of law and protecting our constitutional rights like those of the Second Amendment. A lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court requires a thorough assessment of a candidate’s case and opinions, which is why I appreciate my meeting with her this morning. I will continue to carefully review his record and his legal philosophy, and listen to the people of Alabama in making my final decision on his nomination.

Last week, another notable Alabama politician, Attorney General Steve Marshall, testified against his nomination at a hearing. UW Clemon, first black federal judge appointed in Alabama, also spoke against Jackson’s nomination.

If confirmed, Jackson would be the first black woman to serve on the Supreme Court.

The Senate must vote on whether or not to confirm Jackson to court by April 8.
