Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to retire

Justice Stephen Breyer, a consistent liberal vote on the Supreme Court with an unflappable belief in the US system of government and a pragmatic view of the law, plans to retire after serving for more than two decades on the high court, according to a well-placed source familiar with the matter.

Breyer’s retirement gives Biden a chance to make his first nomination to the bench.

Breyer is expected to stay on until the end of the term and a replacement is confirmed.
