Progressive US Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, one of the nine members of the high court, intends to retire when the current judicial session concludes in July, US media reported Wednesday.

Breyer's retirement would give President Joe Biden the chance to confirm a progressive magistrate to replace him on the high court, where conservatives currently have a 6-3 majority.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a Twitter post that the administration has no specific information on Breyer's plans.
