WASHINGTON—In his 35-year tenure on the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice John Paul Stevens has been an eloquent and steadfast defender of individual liberties, accountability for executive and corporate excesses, and Americans’ rightful access to justice. We will watch with great interest as President Obama goes through the process of selecting a worthy heir to the seat that Justice Stevens has so honorably held.
