Justice John Paul Stevens to Retire

From CNN:

Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens will retire, the high court’s press office said Friday.

His departure after nearly 35 years on the bench will give President Obama another opportunity to shape the court.

Over at Above the Law, Kashmir Hill has posted a copy of Justice Stevens’s retirement letter.

    Say WHAT?

    Shape the court??? Hardly. At best, if the Republicans don’t go all pissy and stop the process indefinitely, Justice Stevens’ departure will merely give President Obama another opportunity to continue the makeup of the court as it has been already.
