State Representative JA Moore (D-Berkeley) introduced a resolution on Tuesday calling on President Biden to nominate US District Judge Michelle Childs to the Supreme Court.
“Judge Childs would make a fantastic Supreme Court justice,” Moore said. “In her time in South Carolina, she has commanded the respect of people on both sides of the aisle for her steady hand and sound judgement. As someone who has known the judge for years, I can think of nobody better for this position and I hope President Biden will nominate her.”
Judge Childs has served as a U.S. district judge for the District of South Carolina since 2010. She previously served as a state circuit court judge. A graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law, Childs would be the first Black woman appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

“TO MEMORIALIZE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND URGE HIM TO CONSIDER THE HONORABLE J. MICHELLE CHILDS FOR NOMINATION TO THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT.
Whereas, the Honorable J. Michelle Childs received her Juris Doctor degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1991; and
Whereas, Judge Childs received her Master of Laws degree from Duke University School of Law in 2016; and
Whereas, Judge Childs has over sixteen years’ experience as judge, having served as a South Carolina Circuit Court judge from 2006 to 2010, and as a judge for the United States District Court for the State of South Carolina since 2010; and
Whereas, Judge Childs has already been nominated by the President of the United States to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit; and
Whereas, United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has announced his intent to retire later this year, leaving an impending vacancy on the nation’s highest court; and
Whereas, Judge Childs’ experience and background establish her as one of the most qualified candidates in the nation for a judgeship at any level; and
Whereas, the appointment of Judge Childs to the United States Supreme Court would be of monumental historic significance to this”
