Rutledge’s Statement on Justice Breyer’s Retirement

LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge issued a statement following the announcement by Associate Justice Stephen Breyer of his intention to retire from the United States Supreme Court.

“Justice Breyer has served with honor, and I thank him for his more than 25 years of service on the U.S. Supreme Court.  I wish him all the best on his well-deserved retirement,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “I hope President Biden will thoughtfully offer a nominee who will faithfully apply the Constitution as written. Knowing the impact the Supreme Court can have on everyday Arkansans, especially following our unanimous victory in Rutledge v. PCMA, I will be watching the nomination process closely and look forward to providing my input as the chief legal officer of the state.”
