Justice Souter Possibly Stepping Down

Above the Law makes a note in its "Supreme Court Clerk Hiring Watch" that Justice Souter has yet to name any clerks for the October 2009 term.  ATL notes,
"Justice Souter traditionally hires last, so it's not surprising that he still has open spots. But one can't help wondering whether DHS, never a fan of life in D.C., might be considering stepping down from the Court, now that President Obama has taken over."
We will keep an eye out for any further developments.
