Rakim H.D. Brooks, president of the Alliance for Justice, praised Schumer for moving forward on lower court nominees even as the high court nomination process continues.
“Yes, we are in an exciting moment to confirm Judge Jackson — an historic, well-qualified nominee — to the Supreme Court. But our lower courts are just as important to our democracy and the rule of law,” Brooks said in a statement. “The professional and demographic diversity these 12 nominees are adding to the bench will ensure our courts have the capacity and wisdom to truly deliver equal justice to all.”
