Stephen Breyer says America goes the wrong manner “every once in awhile”

Former Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer on Saturday made his first public appearance since his retirement, talking with the American Bar Association Conference in Chicago about his views into the future and the task judges do.

The picture as a whole: Breyer officially retired from the high court by the end of June, where he was replaced by Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. It had been announced last month that Breyer will undoubtedly be time for Harvard, where he attended law school and previously taught, to instruct as Professor of Administrative Law and Process at regulations school.

State of play: Breyer made no reference to the string of conservative rulings the Supreme Court issued by the end of its last term, including overturning Roe v. Wade, during his appearance, CNN reported.

  • Breyer spoke concerning the rule of law in the U.S., noting that “America something which has adjusted using its drawbacks and its own going-the-wrong way every once in awhile…overall, I’m still an optimist,” Breyer said, per CNN.
  • “It has not been a country of sheer ups you understand,” Breyer recalled once telling a judge from a different country.
  • “There is a civil war, there is slavery, 80 years of Jim Crow segregation,” he added. “But gradually we try…if this generation doesn’t, another one might.”

Breyer also spoke of the important role that lawyers, along with the American Bar Association, plays in the task of judges.

  • Judges “need the help from the exterior” even though they don’t really always think they do, Breyer said, CNN reported.
