Associate Justice Stephen Breyer was nominated to the Supreme Court by President Clinton in 1994 and is now the court’s fourth longest serving member. Breyer is usually associated with the court’s liberal wing, though he has sided with conservatives in some high profile cases such as Grutter v. Bollinger which upheld a ban on affirmative action at the University of Michigan.
Breyer is a San Francisco native, attending Lowell High School where as a member of the debate team he competed against future governor Jerry Brown. He received his undergraduate degree from Stanford and his J.D. from Harvard, where he was article editor for the law review and later served on the faculty. He has held several posts in Washington, including as counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee and assistant special prosecutor in the Watergate case. Prior to his nomination to the high court, Breyer was chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Boston.
