United States Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy to Retire Effective July 31

United States Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has sent a letter to President Donald Trump, informing the president that he will retire from the High Court on July 31.

President Trump has stated that he will select Justice Kennedy's replacement using a list he initially created during his 2016 presidential campaign. The list includes Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, as well as several other United States appellate court judges, multiple state supreme court justices, and a current United States senator.
