Alabama executed Matthew Reeves by lethal injection a few hours after SCOTUS, in a 5-4 vote, dissolved a lower-court ruling that said Reeves had a right to select nitrogen gas as his method of execution. Our coverage of the decision, from @ellena_erskine:

#SCOTUS grants Alabama's request to allow execution of Matthew Reeves to go forward. Justice Amy Coney Barrett indicates that she would have denied the state's request; Justice Elena Kagan dissents, joined by Breyer & Sotomayor. Order & dissent are here: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf/21a372_5436.pdf
In remarks at the White House, Biden calls Breyer a beacon of wisdom on the Constitution and reiterates his commitment to select a Black woman to succeed him. Biden says he intends to nominate a successor by the end of February.
Breyer makes it official: He tells President Biden in a letter that his retirement will take effect at the end of the current term, assuming his successor has been confirmed by then.
Just in: Biden will give remarks on Breyer's retirement today at the White House at 12:30 p.m. EST. Breyer will be in attendance.
Here's our new Breyer banner from @Courtartist. Breyer has always been an avid biker -- even to the point that he took a few spills. In fact, in 1993, when he was first being considered for a SCOTUS vacancy, he met with Bill Clinton while nursing broken ribs from a bike accident.
@Courtartist outdoes himself again with his Breyer retirement banner @SCOTUSblog.
