Speculation Growing For Imminent Retirement For Justice Kennedy

3

The Supreme Court’s term ends next week with growing speculation that Justice Anthony Kennedy–the panel’s most pivotal member–may retire at age 80 after 29 years on the court.

Action is expected on President Trump’s travel ban before the court’s long summer break but the biggest news of all would be if Kennedy were to use the court’s last public session on Monday to announce his retirement, the Associated Press reported Saturday.

Several of his former law clerks have said they think he is contemplating stepping down in the next year or so.

Kennedy has played an important role as the court’s swing vote on many important rulings. His departure would allow conservatives to wrest near total control of the bench for the foreseeable future. Read more at Fox News.

  1. Now you see how important it was to elect Trump over Hillary, despite Donald’s shortcomings. The Supreme Court control is of utmost importance for the morality & direction of this Country. Let’s hope the old hag, Ginsburg, will hang it up as well.

  2. Too bad the rosho, evil Kennedy didn’t retire a few years ago before he betrayed us and pushed through toeivah ‘marriage’ onto the USA.

    • If he would have retired a few years ago the Obamanation would have put in a liberal judge who would have voted for it anyway and then Trump wouldnt have the chance to replace him with a conservative
