Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg declined to announce her retirement, once again, on the last day of the session on Monday.
Also, Justice Anthony Kennedy declined to his announce his retirement, though he could do so over the summer.
In April, Senate Judiciary Committee chair Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) hinted that a justice might retire over the summer, though he did not say whom. Speculation immediately surrounded Kennedy, since Republican appointees might be expected to allow a Republican president to name their replacements.
For the same reason, liberal Court observers hoped in vain that Ginsburg, the Court’s oldest member, might retire during Barack Obama’s presidency — though many were reassured by the mistaken notion that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 presidential election.
