What does ACB stand for?

ACB are the initials of US Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett. The initialism ACB is popularly used as a short way of referring to her.

Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed in October 2020 after being nominated by President Donald Trump to fill the Supreme Court seat left vacant by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Prior to her joining the Supreme Court, Barrett served in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

The abbreviation of Amy Coney Barrett’s name follows the popular practice of abbreviating the name of other notable political figures, including the justice that she replaced, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG).
