Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has told President Joe Biden that the court will formally retire at noon on Thursday, just hours after announcing the last two verdicts of his current term.

Stephen Breyer letter to Biden was expected, as the trial said in January that he would leave at the end of the term.

Stephen Brayer will be replaced by Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is currently a U.S. Court of Appeals judge for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Breyer will leave six days after the Supreme Court overturned Rowe v. Wade, which established the constitutional right to abortion.

Jackson will be sworn in as the court's 104th associate judge on Thursday afternoon, the Supreme Court press office said Wednesday.

The press office said Chief Justice John Roberts would administer the constitutional oath to Jackson and that he would take the oath of office in Bray Court "before a small gathering of Judge Jackson's family."
