CHAMBERS OF
JUSTICE JOHN PAUL STEVENS
                     
April 9, 2010
                     
My dear Mr. President:

 

Having concluded that it would be in the best
interests of the Court to have my successor appointed
and confirmed well in advance of the commencement of
the Court's next Term, I shall retire from regular
active service as an Associate Justice, under the
provisions of 28 D.S.C. § 371(b), effective the next
day after the Court rises for the summer recess this
year.

 

Most respectfully yours,
The President
The White House
Washington, D.C. 20500
