But souter, named to the Court in 1990, is the last such example.
Justice souter, whom Sotomayor would replace, had an equally fine c.v., but turned out to be a weak force on the High Court.
Only the retiring souter has presided over a trial, and only the 89-year-old John Paul Stevens has served in the military.
President George H.W. Bush had the same experience, to a more limited extent, with Justice souter.
Keep in mind, however, that Sotomayor is replacing the liberal souter.
The souter gae the sow a kiss; "grumph," quo' she, "it's for a birse."
"Saut," quo' the souter, when he had eaten a cow a' but the tail.
souter had fortunately bethought him of holding out a twig as soon as he saw them.
Thus it may be noted that, in the instance just related, the vision was seen on the steep side of souter Fell.
"I'll make you no boots, sir," said George, nettled at being again called souter.
