Supreme Court Justice Odds: Who Will Replace Justice Stephen Breyer?

Today we learned that Justice Stephen Breyer will step down from the Supreme Court once he finishes his current term. This would mean that President Joe Biden will be able to appoint someone to replace Breyer, who served in his role for 27 years.

Currently, the split is 6-3 between conservative and liberal justices, and Breyer stepping down now makes sense when you consider that Democrats hold the majority in the House and the Senate.

Here's a look at the top candidates to replace Justice Stephen Breyer in the Supreme Court.

Supreme Court Justice Odds

Name Odds
Ketanji Brown Jackson+150
Leondra Kruger+233
Kamala Harris+567
Michelle Childs+900

These odds are based on estimates by AboveTheLaw Founder David Lat

Ketanji Brown Jackson

Ketanji Brown Jackson is currently the Judge of the United States of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. President Biden appointed her to this position in June of 2021. Previously, she served from 2010-2014 as the Vice Chair of the United States Sentencing Commission under President Obama. During the 2020 campaign, Joe Biden pledged to appoint a black woman to the court should a vacancy occur. Well, here's his chance we will see if Jackson is the one who gets the call.

Leondra Kruger

Kruger is currently an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of California and she is a former Obama administration official. She served as the Principal Deputy Solicitor General of the United States from 2010 through June of 2011. The seat that Breyer currently sits in historically is a "Jewish seat" which is a standard that Kruger also meets as well as being a black woman.

Kamala Harris

Kamala Harris is the current Vice President serving under Joe Biden. She has also served as a Senator from California, the Attorney General of California, and the District Attorney of San Francisco.

Michelle Childs

Childs is a United States district judge of the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina. She's been in that role since 2010 and she was appointed by Barack Obama. Previously to this position she was the Richland County Circut Court Judge which she served in for four years prior to her latest role.
