The Supreme (UNELECTED and UNACCOUNTABLE Constitution Revising Committee) Court Losing a Robed Royal?
Justice Sandra Day O'Conner announced her retirement today.
O'Conner, a swing vote on issues such as abortion and the death penalty, said she plans to leave before the start of the court's next term in October.
In a letter to President Bush, she wrote: "This is to inform you of my decision to retire from my position as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, effective upon the nomination and confirmation of my successor. It has been a great privilege indeed to have served as a member of the court for 24 terms. I will leave it with enormous respect for the integrity of the court and its role under our constitutional structure."
