Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens died Monday at the age of 99, ABC News reports. Stevens was nominated to the high court by President Gerald Ford in 1975 and retired in 2010 after serving more than 34 years on the court. "He brought to our bench an inimitable blend of kindness, humility, wisdom and independence," Chief Justice John Roberts said. "His unrelenting commitment to justice has left us a better nation."
