Justice Stephen Breyer stepping down from the Supreme Court tomorrow

Justice Stephen Breyer will officially retire from the U.S. Supreme Court tomorrow.

In a letter to President Biden today, Breyer wrote he will officially retire at noon on Thursday, hours after the court is set to release the last two rulings of its current term.

The 83-year-old justice, appointed in 1994, announced his retirement in January. Breyer, one of three liberal justices on the court, is set to be replaced by Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Jackson was confirmed as the next Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court by the Senate in April.

She will be sworn in soon after Breyer officially steps down.
