David Souter, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (1990-2009)

David Hackett Souter is a former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.  He served from 1990 until his retirement on 29 Jun 2009.  Appointed by President George H. W. Bush to fill the seat vacated by William J. Brennan, Jr., Souter was the only Justice during his time on the Court with extensive prior court experience outside of a federal appeals court, having served as a prosecutor, a state’s attorney general and as a judge on state trial and appellate courts.  Souter sat on both the Rehnquist and Roberts courts.  Initially, from 1990 to 1993, Souter tended to be a conservative-leaning justice, but he later came to vote reliably with the court’s liberal members.  Following Souter’s retirement announcement in 2009, President Barack Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor as his successor.
