Finally, a Pubic Defender on the Supreme Court!

Today, June 30, was Justice Stephen Breyer`s last day on the Supreme Court. It`s now the first day that we have a public defender on the high court, with Ketanji Brown Jackson replacing Breyer. It`s so rare to see public defenders rise through the judicial ranks, and unheard of for them to be considered for the highest court in the land. I hope this is a new trend. We need some people who are in this business who do it for a bigger reason than just a good paycheck — because God knows public defenders don`t do it for the money.
