SOUNDBITE (English) Jessica Gresko, Associated Press Supreme Court Reporter:"It was a campaign promise of President Biden's that he would nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court if given the opportunity. This is the first time that the Supreme Court has not been made up of a majority of white men. So, of course, there are now two black justices on the court, Justice Jackson and Justice Clarence Thomas, who is the longest serving justice on the court. And, of course, now there are four women on the court for the first time ever."POOLARCHIVE: Washington —  November 20215. Wide shot of 9 Supreme Court Justices6. Close up of Justice Stephen Breyer7.

SOUNDBITE (English) Jessica Gresko, Associated Press Supreme Court Reporter:"Justice Jackson obviously is joining a court that has just issued some high profile and certainly contentious, divisive within the court decisions. And again, she replaces Justice Breyer, who was of the same ideological sort of bent on the court. So her presence doesn't change that. With everybody stepping away from the court for the summer. Will that sort of lower the temperature a little bit? Perhaps. The justices have sort of said in the past they all really need that break and are to even in in terms that are not as contentious as this one. The Supreme Court has just finished up a term with some very big rulings. Obviously, the ruling overturning Roe versus Wade and the big guns decision that conservative justices were in the majority in both of those decisions. The court has six conservative justices and three more liberal justices. And Justice Jackson's addition to the Supreme Court replacing Justice Stephen Breyer won't change that. Justice Jackson is a graduate of some very impressive schools. She went to Harvard as an undergraduate. She studied law at Harvard University. And then obviously she had this clerkship with Justice Stephen Breyer, which really clerkships are only offered to the best of the best law school students. So clearly she had distinguished herself even very early on in her legal career."ASSOCIATED PRESSARCHIVE: Washington — 8 April 202210. STILL various of people celebrating the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to reach the Supreme Court during a rally outside of the U.S. Supreme Court on Capitol HillASSOCIATED PRESSARCHIVE: Washington — 8 April 202211. STILL Various of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, accompanied by President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, speaking during an event on the South Lawn of the White House celebrating the confirmation of Jackson as the first Black woman to reach the Supreme CourtSTORYLINE:Nearly three months after she won confirmation to the Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson is officially becoming a justice.Jackson, 51, will be sworn as the court's 116th justice Thursday, just as the man she is replacing, Justice Stephen Breyer, retires.The judicial pas de deux is set to take place at noon, the moment Breyer said in a letter to President Joe Biden on Wednesday that his retirement will take effect after nearly 28 years on the nation's highest court.The court is expected to issue its final opinions earlier Thursday in a momentous and rancorous term that included overturning Roe v. Wade's guarantee of the right to an abortion. The remaining cases are a challenge to the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to regulate climate-warming emissions from power plants, and Biden's bid to end the Trump-era "remain in Mexico" asylum program.In a ceremony the court said it will stream live on its website, Jackson will recite two oaths required of Supreme Court justices, one administered by Breyer and the other by Chief Justice John Roberts.Jackson, a federal judge since 2013, will be the first Black woman to serve as a justice. She will be joining three women, Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Amy Coney Barrett — the first time four women will serve together on the nine-member court.Biden nominated Jackson in February, a month after Breyer, 83, announced he would retire at the end of the court's term, assuming his successor had been confirmed. Breyer's earlier-than-usual announcement and the condition he attached was a recognition of the Democrats' tenuous hold on the Senate in an era of hyper-partisanship, especially surrounding federal judgeships.The Senate confirmed Jackson's nomination in early April, by a 53-47 mostly party-line vote that included support from three Republicans.She has been in a sort of judicial limbo ever since, remaining a judge on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., but not hearing any cases. Biden elevated her to that court from the district judgeship to which she was appointed by President Barack Obama.Jackson will be able to begin work immediately, but the court will have just finished the bulk of its work until the fall, apart from emergency appeals that occasionally arise. That will give her time to settle in and familiarize herself with the roughly two dozen cases the court already has agreed to hear starting in October as well as hundreds of appeals that will pile up over the summer.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
