Jones Day of counsel Judge Ann Claire Williams (ret.) was recently recognized by the American Bar Association for her role as chair of the ABA Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary in the evaluation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as a nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Judge Williams and two co-evaluators testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the last day of hearings regarding Judge Jackson's integrity, professional competence, and judicial temperament. Judge Williams presented the data and findings from hundreds of interviews that were the basis of the Standing Committee's unanimous rating of "Well Qualified" for Judge Jackson.
