catania brown jackson to the u. s. supreme court, making her the first black woman to get a seat on the high court. from ktvu. fox two news. this is the fourtn holding president biden's hand as she watched her confirmation vote unfold today at the white house. she will be replacing justice stephen breyer, who who will be retiring at the end of his current term. later on this summer. welcome everyone to the four this afternoon. i'm heather holmes savage will have more on this historic day in washington in just a moment. first notice some breaking news. we're following right now in livermore. police are urging people to avoid interstate 5 80 because of a chp investigation that has shut down the eastbound lanes on the freeway. traffic is being taken off right now from that freeway at north livermore avenue. i what a mess as you can see, this has created a monster backup that extends all the way back to dublin. and interstate 6
4:01 pm
80 again. these are live pictures from sky fox. so far, there is no word on what kind of police investigation is involved . right now. we will bring you updates as soon as they come in on this again breaking news story in livermore, where the chp has closed, eastbound interstate 5 80. alright now we head back to capitol hill where history was made today, as the senate confirmed judge could tangie brown jackson to the supreme court. she will be the first black woman to serve on the high court. fox's caroline shortly. joining us now live from washington, where judge jackson did receive some bipartisan support. caroline. hi there. alex. this is certainly a victory for the white house, as well as democrats in congress as president biden's top pick for the supreme court received bipartisan confirmation. this nomination is confirmed after days of contentious hearings and debate, tangie brown jackson has confirmed to the supreme court. this is one of the great moments. of american history.
4:02 pm
the vote 53 to 47, all 50 democrats in the senate supported her as well as three republicans. the president watched the vote count with judge jackson at the white house. in her confirmation hearings, judge jackson spoke about the sacrifices her parents made in her upbringing and vowed she would decide cases from a neutral posture. judges can't make law judges shouldn't be policymakers. that's a part of our constitutional design during those 30 hours of hearings last month, republicans tried to get a better understanding of her record as a federal public defender and as a judge. many were not satisfied with her answers and what they viewed as lenient sentencing for sex offenders. the number of her cases that have been overturned only reinforces the fact that this requires a deeper look in the deeper i look, the more i realized that her judicial philosophy is anything ethical to mine? it's a really simple answer. judge jackson won't
4:03 pm
officially become justice jackson until later this summer . that is when justice breyer retires. alex back to you. all right, caroline shabbily live for us in washington. thank you. for more now on this history making day, retired santa clara county superior court judge adores hazard. cordell joins us this afternoon and here we are judged for the first time since the supreme court's founding in 17 90. a black woman could see is going to be sitting on the bench. what an extraordinary davis is. indeed it is. i watched the vote as it was taking place on the senate floor, and once she was confirmed, i was clapping along with all of those who want to see her on the bench. this is an amazing day for her. and it's an equally amazing day for america . and i say that because this institution the u. s supreme court is slowly but surely moving forward to look like america when you think that the
4:04 pm
first african american thurgood marshall was on the court, we had to wait. as you noted from 17 90 until we get to the late 19 sixties. and then not wait until 1981 before the first woman to be on the court, so we're making progress. it's very slow. i do hope that soon. we will have an asian american on the court. we will have a native american on the court. this court is now four females when she was sworn in. five males and we're getting the better balanced with regard to the male female ratio in the court, so we've come a long way. i think this is exciting. it's groundbreaking. his historic and i applaud those senators who voted for her confirmation. her identity as a black woman, no doubt shaped her professional choices and her professional and her personal experiences in a way that would, as we all know, differ from that of any other justice. how might that influence her contributions on the high court? so every justice
4:05 pm
is a human being, and every justice brings to the court their own experiences their background. it informs who they are and how they look at the world. so that's why it is so important to have a black woman on the court now because she will bring her experiences her background when she considers how to rule on these cases, the supreme court operates by consensus, they all sit together conference meetings with their law clerks. and then they look at the law and then they discuss it and they have their own viewpoints. so we know that with this additional perspective of a black woman who has had very different experiences from everyone on that court. she will have a perspective a unique one to bring to the table and then they discuss and see if they can arrive at consensus among the majority of the justices on the court, so it's an interesting time, and i hope that she is a consensus builder. but right now she is on the liberal side, and there are basically three women who are on the liberal side
4:06 pm
right now on this court once he's sworn in an african american a latina and a jewish woman. so there's a rainbow started a rainbow on the liberal side, and i hope that as we move along, we'll see more representational diversity on that court. i know that you're a retired judge, not a political analyst. but some wonder whether her sitting on the supreme court will have any immediate impact on the court with an existing conservative majority. your thoughts on that. sure there's a super majority of conservatives on the court. so it is unlikely that it she will be in the majority. in these cases there might be, but what she will likely do is write descents that is, she will not agree with the majority opinion and history shows us that as time goes on, uh, sometimes these dissenting opinions eventually become the majority opinions. so i think she will be very important. she writes beautifully. her positions on cases so we'll see where it goes. but initially, no , you won't see an ideological
4:07 pm
shift. i believe on the court. not for a bit, but she's just 51 years old, and she's got a long tenure on the court because it is a lifetime appointment. that's what i was going to end this conversation with the fact that she is 51. she will be on the bench. for a very long time, retired santa clara county superior court judge the doris cordell always a pleasure to see you. thank you again. thank you, and it's a very good day. all right, let's turn now to the unseasonably hot temperatures we are experiencing outside today. this was the scene here in walnut creek, and why not head to the pool to try to beat the heat lot of folks doing some laps? trying to stay cool today for more on the heat, and how long it's gonna last. let's get over to ktvu meteorologists mark tamayo mark either guys. what's interesting is today. we're trying to find a way to stay cool, right? and then next week, we'll try to find a way to stay warm. and that's how much temperatures are big shift ships around quite a bit. yeah but today temperatures a good 10 to 20 degrees above the average and

4:30 pm
and then that law enforcement investigation happening right now on eastbound 5 80 in livermore. two more black coaches have now joined a hiring discrimination lawsuit against the nfl. the class action suit accuses the league and his teams of racial discrimination in hiring practices. the updated suit filed in federal court today. adds former arizona head coach steve wilks and former tennessee titans defensive coordinator ray horton. former miami dolphins head coach brian flores filed the original suit in february alleging racial discrimination across the nfl. it focused on the new york giants, hiring a white coach with less nfl coaching experience. over flores. attorneys general from six different states are threatening to investigate the nfl over its treatment of female employees in february in new york times investigation found allegations by more than 30 former employees who said they experienced sexual harassment from male bosses. the
4:31 pm
allegations included being forced to attend parties were prostitutes were hired and being forced out for complaining about discrimination. the attorneys general say the league will face a major investigation if the alleged workplace harassment of women and minorities isn't addressed and corrected. now the nfl says, quote. we share the commitment of the attorneys general to ensure all our workplaces are free from discrimination and harassment. we've made great strides over the years in support of that commitment, but we acknowledge that, like many organizations, we have more work to do. for more on all this. we're joined now by dr sean fletcher of public relations professor at san jose state university. always good to see you, professor. thank you. for your time. we have lawsuits. we have the threat of investigations. criminal investigations here is all of this. you think going to lead to a culture change within the nfl? well that's my hope. i feel much better that the conversation has shifted from
4:32 pm
previous conversations that you and i have had on this topic that we're starting out now to see a bit more teeth. behind some of the hearsay and as we know significant major leagues like the national football league if there is no evidence if there is no significant proof if we don't continue to see congress and other political bodies like attorney general james coming out, and actually providing a bit more substance behind this, we've seen the nfl be able to dodge some of these allegations, and we know where there's smoke. there's fire. we just need to continue to have more bodies like congress and like attorney general james coming out in support of this alright. so, the attorney general has promised in essentially that more aggressive legal action will be taken against the nfl if conditions don't improve, if, if a culture
4:33 pm
is not created, where it's one that's free of discrimination and free of harassment. what? what steps do you think the league is going to have to take here to make that happen. moving forward and avoid again that more aggressive legal action well, they're gonna have to do more than what they've shown up until now, more than what they've shown with the washington commanders debacle that we continue to see unfold where there's secrecy and shrouds and layers and layers between us and the truth. we're gonna have to see independent investigations take place that are truly independent. not um individuals who are put in place through entities of the national football league or one of their 32 member in franchises. we truly need an independent investigation, and that's why i believe that, uh, individuals in new york at the league office, they can't feel too good right now that we're starting to get independent bodies weighing in
4:34 pm
on this because they have the power and the bandwidth to present these independent investigations that the nfl cannot fudge they can not shroud they cannot bury like we've seen thus far and we can no longer take their word for it. i'll continue to stress that we cannot take their word for it. that culture changes will happen . we've heard that before, and we continue to see more allegations come out, rinse and repeat, something new has to happen. all right, obviously on the issue of the lack of black head coaches in the nfl, we've certainly talked about this before on paper. you know, we obviously have a lot of teams. they're complying with the rooney rule, which requires them to interview minority candidates . but when you really sit and look at it here, do you think that that black coaches are really being given? an equal opportunity at the head coaching positions. no i don't. and the challenges is that once again, the devil's in the details we see the spirit of the rooney rule. but we also far too often
4:35 pm
see the letter. of the rooney rule being checked off on lists , and we're seeing that today and i applaud ray horton and steve wilks coming out again. they suffer potentially the same threat that brian flores faced when he came out now, while steve wilks is on the carolina panthers coaching staff, ray horton is not and many others who potentially may come out, they faced the threat of penalty of punitive actions that the public may never see why they don't get an opportunity. but we saw with with david cully. we saw him be a one and done when he was under adverse circumstances down with the houston texans, and while he was replaced with another african american head coach, that smokescreen is not gonna work on me simply because you replace him with another african american head coach. they still did not give david cully fair chance, and we continue to see that with more coaches coming out, we need more allies like
4:36 pm
mike mullarkey, who is a white man who came forward and said i was part of a sham hiring process where i knew i had the job yet they still went on an interview. black candidates we know that happens and it's not just those of us who have been in and around the national football league like myself. it is a not so well kept secret that this continues to happen even to this day. we just need more people to step forward and give more bite behind some of the commentary. all right. well we will wait to see what the impact is of these lawsuits. and, of course, the threat of this investigation by these attorneys general across the country appreciate your time and your perspective as always, dr sean fletcher from san jose state. thanks for doing it. absolutely thank you. but lawmakers in alabama today passed bills targeting transgender children and lgbt classroom discussion similar to a florida log dubbed by opponents as don't say gay of the republican controlled
4:37 pm
alabama house of representatives approved sweeping legislation to outlaw gender affirming from dor transg years in prison. a separate measure prohibits early classroom instruction on sexual and gender identity. that bill now goes to republican governor kay ivey for her signature. she has not indicated whether she will sign it. on capitol hill. the debate is heating up over a trump arab border policy that's set to expire next month. it's known as title 42. it's a lot border officials to quickly deport migrants in an effort to prevent further spread of covid-19. as foxes. lauren blanchard reports efforts are underway to delay the end of title 42. lawmakers are working to prevent a new wave of migrants across the southern border bipartisan group of senators, including some moderate democrats, introducing a measure to temporarily block
4:38 pm
the biden administration's plan to end title 42. it's the pandemic related ban in place since 2020 that is allowed border officials to quickly deport migrants to slow the spread of covid-19. they're estimating over 500,000 people a month will be coming across illegally once they drop title 42 next month, the proposed legislation was pitched as an amendment to the latest covid-19 relief package. it would delay the end of title 42 for at least 60 days to give the administration the chance along with local leaders. to create a plan to stop a migrant influx before the policy ends. i don't think that 42 section 42 should be removed until we have secured borders period. meanwhile, officials in some border states are fed up with the numbers and the administration's response. joe biden has refused to come to the border to see the chaos that he has created. by his up and border policies, so we're going to take the border to him. texas
4:39 pm
governor greg abbott says he'll send busloads of migrants to washington d. c i think it's pretty clear this is a publicity stunt. i know that the governor of texas or any state does not have the legal authority to compel anyone to get on a bus and at the southern border, the national guard is holding mass migration drills. if the legislation to delay title 42 does not pass the policy will expire on may 23rd in washington. lauren blanchard, fox news alright. the boys of summer are back while the giants in the age don't play until tomorrow. other teams took the field today we'll take you live to st louis coming up for the delayed start to the major league baseball season. added weather temperatures soaring today, some eighties even a few nineties, but we begin to quote things up tomorrow and then some big time changes for next week. forecast update coming up.
