It’s official: Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will be stepping down on Thursday, after the court releases its final two rulings for the current term. Breyer, 83, who was appointed to be an associate justice of the highest court in the land by President Bill Clinton in 1994, announced his pending retirement earlier this year. In his letter to President Joe Biden on Wednesday, Breyer confirmed that after the Supreme Court hands down its remaining opinions for the term, his retirement from active service will be in effect at noon ET.
