so RBG broke her promise to hire African-American law clerks
Kavanaugh makes good on his pledge at hearing to hire women as law clerks
Justice Kavanaugh just hired the Supreme Court's first all-women law clerk team
During his confirmation hearing, Justice Kavanaugh proudly boasted that "no federal judge ... has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have."
He also said he had four female law clerks ready to work for him "on a moment's notice," which would make him "the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks."
Justice Kavanaugh was as good as his word, and those four women (Kim Jackson, Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy, and Sara Nommensen), were at the Supreme Court on Sunday, aiding Justice Kavanaugh ahead of his first case hearings this week.
Jackson, who is African-American and has previously worked for Justice Kavanaugh, will become one of only three current black law clerks working at the Supreme Court this term.
One of the other 2 black law clerks also previously worked for Justice Kavanaugh
