Farewell Justice Souter

SC090629wide
Monday was David Souter’s last day as a Supreme Court Justice, and this is last sketch of the bench as composed since Justice Alito was seated.

Come Fall, in a bit of musical chairs, Justice Thomas will take the seat vacated by Souter, Ginsberg will take Thomas’ seat, Breyer will take Ginsberg’s, and Alito will move to where Breyer used to sit. The new, most junior Justice will take her seat at the far end on the Chief Justice’s left.

Dana Milbank on Monday’s session here.
