A Supreme Court justice who backs LGBT rights may be preparing to step down. Rumors around his possible retirement are spreading rapidly. The Conservative justice has voted in favour of gay rights at every hearing during his 29 years on the bench. Commentators are now predicting the 80-year-old judge is set to announce his retirement from the court as his current term ends. Speculation of the resignation has been fuelled by several of Kennedy’s former law clerks, who believe he is ready to leave. He recently brought forward a reunion of his former law clerks that had originally been due to take place in 2018. Asked about his potential resignation, Kellyanne Conway said: “I will never reveal a conversation between a sitting justice and the president or the White House, but we’re paying very close attention to these last bit of decisions.”
