Justice O'Connor Resigns

Justice Sandra Day O'Connor today submitted to Pres. Bush the notice of her retirement from the Supreme Court. (Hat tip to Power Line.) Her retirement will become effective when the Senate confirms her successor.

The vacancy created by O'Connor's retirement is the first in 11 years. Expect a hard confirmation battle in the Senate over the choice of her successor, no matter whom Bush nominates.
