Pickering Retires

As expected, Charles Pickering announced his retirement from the federal bench yesterday. Pickering made it clear that his retirement was permanent, noting that President Bush could now nominate younger candidates. This would appear to be a dubious victory for Democrats, considering that, as alluded to by Pickering, Bush will now nominate a candidate who is likely to serve much longer than the 67-year old Pickering would have. Moreover, certain racial skeletons in his closet notwithstanding, Pickering was regarded by most informed litigants as a judicial moderate.
