WASHINGTON, April 27 (Reuters) – Justice Stephen Breyer participated on Wednesday in the final scheduled oral argument of his 28-year career on the U.S. Supreme Court, hearing an emotional tribute from Chief Justice John Roberts at the end of the proceedings.
“The oral argument we have just concluded is the last the court will hear with Justice Breyer on the bench,” Roberts said, his voice trembling.
“For 28 years this has been his arena for remarks profound and moving, questions challenging and insightful, and hypotheticals downright silly,” Roberts said.
Breyer is known for peppering attorneys arguing cases before him with queries involving outlandish hypothetical scenarios as he sorted through complex legal matters.
