    Stephen Breyer

  1. Justice Stephen Breyer, on how the Supreme Court has changed since he was appointed in 1994: “It’s gotten a little  harder for me in some respects. The first few years, I was pretty  nervous about whether I could do this job. Then you adjust to it. I  think over time, I worked pretty well with some of the members there and  I was quite often in the majority and then Justice White said that,  ‘with every new member, it’s a new court.’ And we’ve had quite a few new  members and the court’s changed and people learn to work with each  other again. I’m more in the dissent now. If you want a more precise  statement, that’s it.” (Photo: Steve Petteway) View in High-Res
