Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy retiring

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring after more than 30 years on the high court, according to a statement today.

For more than three decades he’s reigned as the black-robed justice in the middle, the super-cerebral conservative from┬áCalifornia who riled the right for casting ideology aside and forging an independent path that frequently led him to concur with his more liberal colleagues on the U.S. Supreme Court.
