Washington, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator Susan Collins met with Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the President’s nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States.


Following their meeting, which lasted more than an hour and a half, Senator Collins made the following comments:


“I had a lengthy and very productive conversation today with Judge Jackson.  I thought it went well.  We covered a lot of issues.  She explained in great depth the methodology that she uses as she approaches the cases that come before her.  It's clear that her credentials and the breadth of her experience are impressive.  She has been a law clerk, a public defender, an attorney in private practice, a member of the Sentencing Commission, a district court judge for more than eight years, and now a circuit court judge.  I will of course await the hearings before the Judiciary Committee before making a decision, but I found today's session to be very helpful.”


Judge Jackson’s public hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin on March 21.
