BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Western New York is welcoming Supreme Court Justice John Roberts Friday. Two thousand people gathered in Jamestown to hear Justice Roberts speak outside the Robert H. Jackson Center for Justice on East 4th Street. Most of the people in the crowd Friday were students.
Roberts was introduced to the crowd as a Bills fan, and he said it was wonderful to be back home.
Roberts focused a lot of his time on the contributions of the late United States Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson. Jackson became the chief prosecutor at the Nuremburg Trials, which brought Nazi war criminals to justice after World War II.
Friday morning in Jamestown, Roberts said, "It's great to be back home. It is easy for those of us who live in Washington to forget that Robert Jackson was shaped by this beautiful world region. His formative years in Frewsburg and Jamestown at a time when families and communities relied on the stable virtues of thrift industry and self reliance."
