A report on a Newsweek blog this week sent another tremor through the Supreme Court community about the possibility that Justice John Paul Stevens is planning to retire at the end of the upcoming term. The justice had sent an e-mail to all his former law clerks, the report said, inviting them to a clerk reunion next May. This was taken as an unusual move by the justice and a further sign that this term might be his last on the Court.

Well, the report of such an e-mail was news to several former Stevens law clerks we contacted, who had not received one. Other law clerks did receive an e-mail, but not from Stevens or his chambers. Instead, it was from another former clerk who was apprently in the early stages of spreading the word about a reunion in May.
