Breyer is an alumnus of Harvard Law School who also teaches at the school. In the election of President Biden in 82, the Democratic Party’s paper is as thin as the Senate majority court. The oldest justice prompted rumors that Breyer was appointed by Democratic President Clinton in 1994. Yes, it may retire soon, maybe as early as summer.
Although he did not publicly express his plans, the speech can be seen as a farewell speech, full of ideas that appeal to the public to treat the justices as “junior politicians.”
He pointed out, for example, that despite the conservative courts, the courts did not participate in the 2020 elections in the past year, won the abortion clinics in Louisiana, and rejected former President Donald Trump̵
Trump appointed three judges to appear in court, and the last Amy Coney Barrett (Amy Coney Barrett) replaced the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg in October.
Breyer admitted that conservative views prevailed in other decisions.
He said: “These considerations lead me to believe that it is wrong to treat the court as another political institution.”
Breyer’s lecture was part of the Harvard University Scalea lecture series, which was named after the late Justice Antonio Scalea. Breyer and Scalia have been colleagues in the High Court for more than two decades.
