Steps around the question of Jackson Court packing – Indy News

Washington – Supreme Court nominee Ketanzi Brown Jackson has set his sights on questions about court-packing and the televisions of the High Court proceedings.

During Jackson’s Senate confirmation hearing, Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley pressured federal judges on proposals from some Democrats to increase the number of judges in the Supreme Court and the number of judges in the Federal Appeals Court.

Jackson called it a policy question that should be left to Congress and promised to stay “in my lane.” To televise Supreme Court proceedings, Jackson said he would discuss the matter with other judges if he was convinced.

Grassley also asked Jackson if he believed the Supreme Court was “bought by dark money groups”, as some progressives have alleged. Jackson said he had no reason to believe.

Jackson said he was driven by the limitations of impartiality and judicial authority. He argued that judges should rule “without fear or favor.”

President Biden has nominated Jackson, 51, to replace retired Liberal Justice Stephen Brayer. The judge of the Federal Court of Appeals will be the first black woman to serve in the country’s highest court if she is confirmed.
