Former court justice John Paul Stevens passed away at the age of 99.

I know Fox News messed up with announcing prematurely RBG death but this time, it's not fake news.

Former Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens, one of the longest-serving justices on the bench, died Tuesday evening at the age of 99, the court announced in a statement.

The cause of death was "complications following a stroke he suffered on July 15," the court said.

Stevens served on the Supreme Court for nearly 35 years, and became its leading liberal -- although Stevens himself rejected that characterization.

"I don't think of myself as a liberal at all," Stevens told The New York Times in 2007. "I think as part of my general politics, I'm pretty darn conservative."

If it was RBG who died, this thread would have 1000 replies by now.

I thank John Paul Stevens for his service to our nation, both in the military and on the federal judiciary. I'll leave it at that.

Back in January, early morning state TV, Fox and Friends “ accidentally” showed a graphic announcing RBG died, 1933-2019. It was blamed on the graphic department.

LOL Liberals never think of themselves as liberals. JPS was no different, in that respect.

You do realize he ruled with the liberals on virtually every case. What makes a person - what they say, or what they do?
