In Court: A 4 p.m. hearing is scheduled before Circuit Judge Terence Perkins in the case of Richard Dunn, the man who killed his father in 2006 and has been seeking to regain his full freedom without court supervision. Dunn was back in jail in September 2021 after a probation violation. He was kept there in light of revelations that his behavior has backtracked, with bizarre developments, leading to a new psychological evaluation and re-commitment, in January 2022, to a state hospital. Today’s hearing will consider a motion to release him from custody.

“Now, in preparing for these hearings, you may have read some of my more than 570 written decisions, and noticed that my opinions tend to be on the long side. That is because I also believe in transparency: that people should know precisely what I think and the basis for my decision. And all of my professional experiences, including my work as a public defender and a trial judge, have instilled in me the importance of having each litigant know that the judge in their case has heard them, whether or not their arguments prevail in court. During this hearing, I hope that you will see how much I love our country and the Constitution, and the rights that make us free. I stand on the shoulders of many who have come before me, including Judge Constance Baker Motley, who was the first African American woman to be appointed to the federal bench and with whom I share a birthday. And like Judge Motley, I have dedicated my career to ensuring that the words engraved on the front of the Supreme Court building—”Equal Justice Under Law” — are a reality and not just an ideal. Thank you for this historic chance to join the highest Court, to work with brilliant colleagues, to inspire future generations, and to ensure liberty and justice for all.”
–From Ketanji Brown Jackson’s opening statement at her Supreme Court confirmation hearing, March 21, 2022.
