Sandra Day O’Connor Retires for Good

So sad.

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor has announced she is withdrawing from public life after being diagnosed with dementia.

In a letter released on Tuesday, the 88-year-old said doctors had diagnosed her with early-stage dementia and “probably Alzheimer’s disease”.

Justice O’Connor was the first woman to be appointed to the US top court, and a key swing vote. She retired in 2006.

She served as a visiting judge and civics educator after retiring.

    Such a shame. She was truly a Supreme Court Judge with common sense.
