Justice Stevens to retire'

The Associated Press reported yesterday that Justice Stevens has hired only one clerk for the Court's 2010 Term, rather than the four clerks that he and the other Justices have usually hired by this time. Although Justice Stevens would not comment, the AP speculates that this may signal Justice Stevens' intent to retire at the end of the 2009 Term; retired Justices are allowed to hire only one clerk. If he chooses to continue serving through July 2012, Justice Stevens would become the longest serving Justice in Supreme Court history. You can find the full article here.
