Justice Stephen Breyer will retire Thursday
Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer told President Joe Biden that he will officially retire at noon Thursday, hours after the court is set to release the last two rulings of its current term.
Breyer’s letter to Biden was expected, as the justice said in January that he would leave at the end of its term.
He will be supplanted by Ketanji Brown Jackson, who as of now is an adjudicator on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Breyer's takeoff will come six days after the Supreme Court toppled Roe v. Swim, which laid out a sacred right to fetus removal.
Breyer's letter to Biden was normal, as the 83-year-old equity said in January that he would leave toward the finish of its term.
It was only Wednesday morning that the court said that Thursday would be the last day for opinions to be released.
