Fond Philly farewell for Souter from judges
PHILADELPHIA — Supreme Court Justice David Souter is saying a fond farewell to judges and lawyers he has worked with for nearly two decades.
Souter says members of the legal profession should take satisfaction in doing “something worth doing” and trying “to do it well.”
He is speaking at an annual conference of judges and lawyers from Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Souter handles matters that come to the Supreme Court from those states.
The 69-year-old Souter announced last Friday that he will retire this summer.
