Ketanji Brown Jackson to Take Supreme Court Oath Minutes After Stephen Breyer Retires

From a Washington Post story by Robert Barnes headlined “Jackson to take Supreme Court oath minutes after Breyer retires”:

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will be sworn in as the Supreme Court’s first Black female justice at noon Thursday, just minutes after her mentor Justice Stephen G. Breyer makes his retirement official.

Jackson, 51, was chosen for the court by President Biden after Breyer this year announced his plans to retire. She was confirmed April 7 but has been waiting for Breyer to finish out the last term of his four-decade judicial career.
