Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will be retiring.
Breyer became a justice in 1994 after being appointed by then President, Bill Clinton. He has been a fundamental part of the court and in recent years has been someone who has forged majorities with right and left justices.
Though Breyer has not announced his retirement, NBC News was quick to report his plans to retire.
Supreme Court Justice Breyer is expected to retire this summer and an announcement is imminent. His departure will not change the 6-3 conservative advantage in the court. President Joe Biden will nominate his replacement. Biden has said in the past that he was planning to fill an empty spot with the court’s first Black woman in the high court.
