US President Joe Biden lauds “uniquely accomplished” Supreme Court candidate Ketanji Brown Jackson Friday as he nominated her to be the first Black woman to serve on the court.

“She steps up to fill Justice (Stephen) Breyer’s place on the court with a uniquely accomplished and wide-ranging background,” Biden says in a White House address.

“She served both in public service, as a federal public defender, and in private law practice as an accomplished lawyer.”
