HERE COMES KETANJI! Justice Stephen Breyer Says Thursday His Last Day on the Court

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer released a statement Wednesday confirming Thursday will be his final day on the bench.

His replacement, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, was confirmed earlier this year.

“The Court has announced that tomorrow, beginning at 10 a.m., it will hand down all remaining opinions ready during this Term. Accordingly, my retirement from active service under the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 371(b) will be effective on Thursday, June 30, 2022, at noon,” Breyer wrote Wednesday.

“It has been my great honor to participate as a judge in the effort to maintain our Constitution and the Rule of Law,” Breyer wrote.

Breyer first joined the court in 1994.
