Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer confirmed this week that Thursday will be his last day serving on the court. He will be replaced by Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
“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.
“It has been my great honor to participate as a judge in the effort to maintain our Constitution and the Rule of Law,” Breyer added.
Breyer notified the White House in January of his intention to retire at the end of court’s term.
Breyer, who is 83, has served on the Supreme Court since 1994.
