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.

SCOTUS releases new "circuit justice" lineup, with Jackson taking over the Boston-based 1st Circuit (formerly handled by Breyer). Each justice reviews emergency appeals from the regions covered by his or her circuits. (Controversial cases usually get referred to the full court.)
Today at SCOTUS: The justices meet privately for their annual "long conference" to review cert petitions that have rolled in over the summer. They'll also likely discuss the status of the Dobbs leak investigation and whether to continue live audio of oral arguments this term.
