US Supreme Court justice Stephen Breyer announced his retirement on Wednesday, paving the way for President Biden to nominate his own choice for the vacancy. Biden already had promised he would nominate a black woman for the post.

Breyer, who was nominated by former President Bill Clinton in 1994, has been part of the US’ highest court’s liberal group, which now comprises three members.

The New York Times reports, citing a source who is involved in planning the event, that Biden will likely formally announce Breyer’s retirement at the White House tomorrow.
