Spring Court

In this Nov. 9, 1990, file photo U.S. Supreme Court justices pose for a group portrait at the court in Washington. Clockwise from top left are Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Antonin Scalia, David Souter, John Paul Stevens, Thurgood Marshall, and Chief Justice William Rehnquist. Years later O'Connor, the first woman ever to serve on the court, would say of Marshall, the first African-American to serve on the court, that he ├Čimparted not only his legal acumen but also his life experiences, constantly pushing and prodding us to respond not only to the persuasiveness of legal argument but also to the power of moral truth.
