Ketanji Brown Jackson sworn in to U.S. Supreme Court

Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first black woman confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, was sworn in yesterday, replacing retiring justice Stephen Breyer. Though an historic moment, "the lifetime appointment … will not shift the current ideological balance of the court," notes the BBC.

Forthcoming 6-3 rulings whose dissents Jackson will be joining include gay rights, affirmative action and elections.
