Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh offered praise for his new colleague Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson this week, telling an audience at the University of Notre Dame Law School that she has “hit the ground running.”

Kavanaugh was present for a keynote Q&A session at the 2023 Notre Dame Law Review Federal Courts Symposium on Monday, where he addressed the perception that the Supreme Court is sharply divided on ideological grounds after a series of controversial decisions that went in favor of conservatives.

Critics on the left have accused the 6-3 majority of Republican-appointed Supreme Court justices of undermining the court’s legitimacy with rulings that have expanded gun rights and a highly controversial decision last June that overturned Roe v. Wade, declaring there is no constitutionally protected right to abortion. But according to Kavanaugh, the justices are still on friendly terms despite spirited disagreements.

Kavanaugh said, “There are great relations among all nine justices both personally and professionally. We only get tough cases, and we disagree on some of those. I think that’s more nuanced than it is sometimes portrayed.”

He told the students that they all do spend “an enormous amount of time” together. He said they even eat lunch together on a regular basis.

Kavanaugh continued, “You can’t talk about work at lunch. So, you talk about the things that you would talk about with your friends. You talk about your kids, you talk about movies, you talk about books, you talk about war stories . . . again and again.”

Fox News further reported:

Kavanaugh said that liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer “couldn’t have been better at welcoming me to the court.”

It’s a courtesy he said the justices extended towards new Supreme Court appointees under both Presidents Trump and Biden. Kavanaugh praised Jackson, the latest addition to the court, as someone who is “fully prepared, thoroughly prepared” and “off to a great start.”

He added, “We miss Justice Ginsburg, of course, and Justice Breyer, but there’s turnover, and it’s wonderful to have two new colleagues who have fit in, in my judgment, fit in well with the group.”

Notre Dame Law School tweeted Thursday, “U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh visited campus earlier this week for the @NotreDameLRev Federal Courts Symposium. Read more about his Q&A with Dean G. Marcus Cole and watch a video of the conversation here.”

Supreme Court reporter Lawrence Hurley tweeted, “Justice Kavanaugh made a public appearance on Jan 23 at Notre Dame Law School, although it was only just made public. Video here:”
