Justice Jackson's investiture ceremony has concluded. After the ceremony, she took the traditional walk down the court's front steps, accompanied by the chief justice. She also shared a moment with her husband, Patrick, on the plaza after the ceremony. Photos by @katieleebarlow.
Today at SCOTUS: The investiture of Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to serve as a justice. Jackson was sworn in over the summer, so the investiture is purely ceremonial. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris reportedly are expected to attend the invite-only event at the court.
