President Ford nominated John Paul Stevens to the Supreme Court in 1975.  He identified as a conservative but his opinions on issues of civil liberties, the death penalty, and intellectual property were considered as liberal.  He initially opposed affirmative action but changed his view.  In 2018, Stevens said that Brett Kavanaugh’s statements at his confirmation hearing should have disqualified him for his potential for political bias.  Powell said the decision in the case of Citizens United was “a disaster for our election law.”  He retired after thirty-four years on the bench making him the second-oldest justice in the history of the Supreme Court.

US Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest federal court of the United States, established in 1788 pursuant to Article Three of the U.S. Constitution.  It has the ultimate jurisdiction over all federal and state court cases involving federal laws.  The Court normally consists of the Chief Justice and eight associate justices, who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.  Justices have lifetime tenure unless they resign, retire or are removed after impeachment.  The Supreme Court is one of the three branches of the federal government which also includes the Executive (President) and Legislative (Senate and House of Representatives).

This U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens History Mug is part of our U.S. Supreme Court series which includes all the U.S. Supreme Court Justices.

The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history.  The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton.  He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia-tone.  The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
