American Bar Association Rates Judge Jackson Unanimously "Well Qualified" to Serve on the Supreme Court

WASHINGTON – In a letter to U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley, Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the American Bar Association (ABA) rated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson unanimously “Well Qualified” to serve on the United States Supreme Court—ABA’s highest possible rating.

“As you know, the Standing Committee confines its evaluation to the qualities of integrity, professional competence, and judicial temperament.  The Standing Committee is of the unanimous opinion that Judge Jackson is ‘Well Qualified’ to serve on the United States Supreme Court,” wrote the Hon. Ann Claire Williams (Ret.), Chair of the Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary for the American Bar Association.
