Justice Stephen Breyer officially retires from Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court released its most significant opinion in a half-century just last week. This week has brought a major change to the makeup of the high court.

Justice Stephen Breyer has retired from the Supreme Court effective Thursday, the Conservative Brief reported. Though he had notified President Joe Biden at the beginning of the year, Breyer made it official in a letter.

“The Court has announced that tomorrow, beginning at 10 a.m., it will hand down all remaining opinions ready during this Term,” Breyer wrote Wednesday. “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.”

“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. This news came less than a week after the Supreme Court handed down the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The court was asked to deliberate on the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case and subsequently voted in favor of overturning nearly 50 years of judicial precedent on abortion. That sent shockwaves through the nation with the final opinion breaking along the lines of originalist versus liberal justices.

Now Breyer, one of the more liberal justices, has been replaced with Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. She was sworn in Thursday afternoon and is the first black woman on the high court, the New York Post reported.

Brown was nominated in February with President Joe Biden’s endorsement of her “extraordinary qualifications,” and she was confirmed in April. The Harvard Law graduate’s previous experience included clerking for Breyer.

Both Breyer and Brown are of the same mind when it comes to endorsing leftist judicial activism. The positive news for conservatives is that when Brown begins her time on the bench in October, the abortion issue has already safely been taken off the table — at least for the time being.
