Today, just after the Supreme Court released its final decisions of the term, Justice Kennedy announced his retirement effective July 31, 2018. Chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network, Carrie Severino responded.
“Justice Kennedy was a transformative justice during a period of great transition on the Court, demonstrating the incredible impact one justice can have. In cases like Obamacare, Heller, and Citizens United, Justice Kennedy was a passionate defender of individual liberty and the separation of powers. I want to thank him for his service to our country and I look forward to the nomination and confirmation of his successor.”
