Justice Kennedy is retiring, now what?

Nikhil Pillai | June 28, 2018
Justice Anthony Kennedy has announced that he will retire from the Supreme Court effective July 31, 2018. This will provide President Trump a second opportunity to nominate a justice to the Supreme Court, likely an ultra-conservative in the mold of Neil Gorsuch. As Supreme Court justices serve for life, every issue – reproductive rights, immigration, marriage equality, gun control, employment rights, education, criminal justice, the environment – is at stake. If you are a 501(c)(3) public charity, you can weigh in on and advocate for or against judicial nominees.
