Justices react to Kennedy’s passing

Two justices of the Supreme Court have made statements on the passing of Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Justice Stephen Breyer, who worked closely with Kennedy while serving as chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee in the 1970s, said: “The country has lost a great senator. We who worked for him remember and will always cherish his practical wisdom, his sense of humor, his determination, and his love of his country and its history. He was dedicated to helping others. Our hearts go out to Vicki and to his family. Senator Kennedy was a great American.”

Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. also made a statement, saying: “I am very saddened by Senator Kennedy’s¬†passing. He was – all his life – a sincere, dedicated, and tireless public servant.”
