Souter reportedly stepping down from Supreme Court


WASHINGTON News reports say Justice David Souter plans to retire from the Supreme Court at the end of the court s term in June.

Speculation that the 69-year-old justice will be stepping down has been fueled by his failure to appoint law clerks from the fall term.

National Public Radio is reporting that Justice Souter has informed the White House of his intentions and will remain on the bench until a successor is confirmed.

The Supreme Court declined to comment on the report.
