When I covered the #SCOTUS for three years, #JohnPaulStevens was one of the great stalwart justices. He was an extraordinary jurist and I feel grateful to have witnessed him on the bench. He penned so many great rulings and dissents.
In 2000, it was Stevens who spoke out against the SCOTUS end run against the election. It was a fundamentally important dissent that was sadly prescient.
Stevens was 99 & died as the result of a stroke he suffered yesterday. His was a life well lived in service to this country,
My thoughts are with #JohnPaulStevens' family and others who loved him. His decency was equal to his intellect. There are few enough about whom that can be said.
