Boss Ladies of CLE: Justice Melody Stewart

As the first African American woman elected to the state's highest court, this trained pianist has brought her unique perspective to the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Justice Melody Stewart is starting the new year like many of us – working from home in Cleveland. But her work is Ohio’s Supreme Court. She was the first African American woman elected to the state’s highest court in 2018.

"I think what I bring to the court that is different is the perspective that my other colleagues don't have. By my being an African American woman, by being raised by a single mother in the Hough area of Cleveland," Stewart said.

Though the Ohio Supreme Court is in located Columbus, this Boss Lady is proud of her Cleveland roots and happy to spend more time at home during the pandemic.
