Washington (AP) -- Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, the court's oldest member and leader of its liberal bloc, says he is retiring.

President Barack Obama now has his second high court opening to fill.

Stevens says he will step down when the court finishes its work for the summer in late June or early July.

His announcement Friday in Washington had been hinted at for months.

It comes 11 days before his 90th birthday.
