Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's Resignation Letter
Dear President Bush:
"This is to inform you of my decision to retire from my position as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, effective upon the nomination and confirmation of my successor.
"It has been a great privilege, indeed, to have served as a member of the Court for 24 terms.
"I will leave it with enormous respect for the integrity of the Court and its role under our constitutional structure."
