President Barack Obama signed a bill Friday that names Buffalo's new federal courthouse in memory of the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson.
The naming legislation, sponsored by Congressman Brian Higgins, was approved by the House in July and passed by the Senate in September.
Robert Jackson was raised in Frewsburg and spent much of his young adult life in Jamestown and Buffalo. He rose through the legal ranks to become U.S. Solicitor General, U.S. Attorney General, and eventually Supreme Court Justice in 1941.
