WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Senate today confirmed Judge Kentaji Brown Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, whom Norton recommended to President Obama for the district court, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

“I take great pride in seeing Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, whom I recommended to President Obama for the U.S. District Court for D.C., elevated to the D.C. Circuit, which many consider to be the second highest court in the land,” Norton said.

President Biden, like Presidents Clinton and Obama, has granted Norton senatorial courtesy for judges on the U.S. District Court for D.C., the U.S. Attorney for D.C., the U.S. Marshal for the D.C. Superior Court, and the U.S. Marshal for the U.S. District Court for D.C.
