United States Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will retire, creating an opening on the nine-member high court, according to US media reports.

The 83-year-old Justice Breyer’s decision to retire gives President Joe Biden an opportunity to appoint a successor who could serve for decades. Biden has pledged to nominate a Black woman to the court, which would be a first in US history.
