WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden on Thursday formally announced the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer at a White House event, praising the liberal jurist as a "model public servant" and vowing to move swiftly to name his successor.

"I think he's a model public servant, in a time of great division in this country," Biden said.

Biden, who pledged to name a Black woman to the high court, said he planned to name his nominee by the end of February.

At 83, Breyer is the second-most senior associate justice, and his retirement was encouraged by liberals who wanted to ensure Biden's nominee would benefit from a Senate controlled by Democrats.

The president said he would seek out advice from both parties and leading scholars, meet with potential candidates and carefully study their former cases before making his decision over the next month. But he vowed to name an "historic candidate" who is "worthy of Justice Breyer's legacy." Read more.
