#3 – New Supreme Court Justice
Given that it is Women’s History Month, what better way to start the article than talking
about the newly nominated lawyer that may be appointed to SCOTUS. Her name is Judge
Ketanji Brown Jackson, and if appointed she would take Justice Breyers’ seat on the bench. Her
story is so interesting, because if appointed, she would become the first African American female
to serve and she would also be the first public defender to be on the bench.
