Justice Kennedy, 81, announced his retirement in a letter to President Trump. Kennedy’s retirement will be effective July 31.

Shortly after, President Trump announced that his search for a new justice would begin “immediately.” He later said that he would announce his selection on July 9.

The potential candidates were rumored to be three federal judges: Raymond Kethledge, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.
