Supreme Court nominee plugs family in Park City during confirmation hearing

WASHINGTON — Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson thanked her husband’s brother Gardie Jackson and his wife Natalie, residents of Park City, during her confirmation hearing opening statement to the Senate on Monday.

If confirmed, Judge Brown Jackson would be the first Black woman on the Supreme Court in U.S. history.

“We now see all these barriers being broken,” Gardie Jackson told KUTV.

“It’s just mind blowing to be a part of that, it makes me feel like the world has gotten a little smaller because everything is closed in and it’s kind of cool in that way,” he said.

“I think there’s a genuine desire to see something good happen in this country right now and maybe Ketanji is it.”

In her opening statement, she vowed to make the words — “Equal Justice Under Law” — inscribed on the Supreme Court’s edifice, “a reality and not just an ideal.” She also committed to a “neutral stance” if confirmed and promised “transparent” opinions.

“People, I think, are going to see this person as not just a black female Supreme Court justice but as somebody who really knows how to interpret the constitution,” Gardie said.
