Biggert Reacts to Justice O'Connor's Resignation

U.S. Representative Judy Biggert (R-IL-13), an attorney and Co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on the Judicial Branch, today issued the following statement honoring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the occasion of her retirement:

"Justice O'Connor served as a role model at a time when very few women were pursuing legal careers. As the first woman ever to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice O'Connor earned her place in history, making a permanent mark on the judicial system that will forever inspire girls and women throughout America.

"She was a steady -- albeit unpredictable -- presence on the bench. She was incredibly thoughtful and deliberate with her decisions, evaluating every case on its merits. She will be greatly missed."
