BREAKING: Kennedy To Retire From Supreme Court

Law360

Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, the U.S. Supreme Court’s most senior member, is stepping down from the bench at 81, the court announced Wednesday. His retirement will hand President Donald Trump the chance to replace a crucial swing vote and shift the ideological balance of the court to the right.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced Wednesday that he is retiring from the Supreme Court, a move that gives President Trump the chance to replace the court’s pivotal justice and dramatically shift the institution to the right, setting up a bitter partisan showdown on Kennedy’s successor...Washington could be in for an epic battle over Kennedy’s replacement. While Senate Democrats lack the numbers to deny the seat to whoever Trump chooses, they will ratchet up the stakes of the choice.It will be the first time since Justice Clarence Thomas replaced Thurgood Marshall more than 25 years ago that a new justice could radically change the direction of the court. Since then, new members added to the court have replaced justices of the same general ideology...Kennedy, 81, has been the court’s most important member for more than a decade. The Californian chosen by President Ronald Reagan has cast the deciding vote on the court’s controversial Citizens United campaign finance decision, the constitutional right to same-sex marriage and the continued viability of affirmative action.

Democrats said no less than the future of abortion rights, health care, collective bargaining and same-sex equality is in peril, while Republicans claimed a seminal opportunity to shift the high court’s ideological orientation solidly to the right for a generation or more.

Washington Post
The retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy is a much-welcomed jolt as Republicans seek to galvanize core voters ahead of November’s midterm elections. “One thing that energizes conservatives more than anything else is the Supreme Court,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), top deputy to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
