President Biden on Feb. 25 nominated Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to assume Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer’s seat upon his retirement in June and NAHB has been assessing what this pick could mean for housing.
NAHB is no stranger to the U.S. Supreme Court, having won three cases at the court over the years. Every year, NAHB submits amicus or “friend of the court” briefs on a variety of cases involving issues that impact NAHB members and their business activities.
The justices that make up the the nation’s highest court are therefore closely studied by NAHB. While it is difficult to know how a judge will rule once they sit on the Supreme Court, their rulings in prior cases provide information that helps read the tea leaves.
