Souter announces his retirement

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter said in a letter to the White House that he intends to retire.

“When the Supreme Court rises for the summer recess this year, I intend to retire from regular active service as a justice,” he said in a one-paragraph letter notifying President Barack Obama of his retirement plans. The high court goes on recess at the end of next month.
