The Victory Fund reports that Stanford Law School professor Kathleen Sullivan's name is being mentioned as a potential nominee to fill Souter's position on the SCOTUS:
"Sullivan’s name appears on lists compiled by the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and
numerous law blogs. She is the founder and director of the Stanford
Constitutional Law Center, and served as dean of Stanford Law School
from 1999 to 2004. Sullivan has filed amicus curiae briefs in some of the most important Supreme Court cases involving LGBT rights, including Bowers v. Hardwick and Lawrence v. Texas."
Last night, NBC's Pete Williams broke the news that Souter was planning to retire.
