I previously blogged that Justice David Souter's failure to hire law clerks for the coming term lead some to speculate that he might be retiring from the Court. Tonight, that speculation ended, as both NPR and the New York Times reported that the Justice will retire at the conclusion of this term. However, he plans to remiain active on the Court until a successor can be appointed and confirmed.
Please watch this space for more information on the nomination and confirmation proceedings. Finally, thank you, Justice Souter, for your service on the Court.
