Ireland said he will retire in July, several months before he reaches the mandatory retirement age of 70. "Serving the people of Massachusetts in this great office of public trust has been a truly humbling, challenging, stimulating — albeit sometimes difficult , but always rewarding experience, and I have enjoyed each and every day of my work," Ireland wrote in a letter to Gov. Deval Patrick. Patrick named Ireland as the first black chief justice in the court's history in 2010. Ireland was first appointed to the high court in 1997. (AP Photo/Bizuayehu Tesfaye)
