Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson Gives her First Majority Opinion for The Supreme Court
Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, appointed by President Joe Biden in June of last year, wrote her first majority opinion for the court on Tuesday, Lawrence Hurley reports for NBC News. The opinion addressed a dispute between Delaware and other states over unclaimed MoneyGram checks, ruling that they must be distributed to the states where they were initially purchased. Jackson argued that given “the history and text” of federal law, exempting MoneyGram checks from similar treatment as money orders would be strange. In addition to this ruling, she has written separately in other cases since sworn in last summer.
