The Obama administration, contemplating the possible retirement of U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, is focusing on three candidates to succeed him, a White House official familiar with the deliberations said.
The group includes U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan and federal appellate judges Diane Wood and Merrick Garland, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
Stevens, who will turn 90 on April 20, told the New York Times in an April 2 interview that he will decide soon whether he will step down. “The president and the Senate need plenty of time to fill a vacancy,” Stevens told the newspaper.
