Offical portrait

Anthony Kennedy is a sitting United States Supreme Court Justice appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1987.

Kennedy, a compromise candidate, became Reagan's third choice when the Senate rejected Robert Bork (of Nixon-era Saturday Night Massacre fame) and the name of Douglas Ginsburg was withdrawn after he admitted smoking marijuana with his law students at Harvard.[1] Kennedy was confirmed 97-0 by the U.S. Senate.
