“It was a real pleasure to meet with Judge Jackson today. I’m familiar with her background and many of her rulings. She also is a former Maryland resident.  We had much to talk about – she has many connections to our state,” said Senator Cardin after the meeting.

“Judge Jackson is eminently qualified. We talked about her personal experience and her commitment to equal justice under the law, especially for those who have difficulty accessing our legal system. We discussed the importance of an independent judicial branch of government and protecting the rights of individuals against powerful special interests. I was impressed with Judge Jackson throughout our conversation. Our meeting reinforced how critical it will be to have her on the Supreme Court.”
