White House: No Supreme Court Pick This Week

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama won't announce a Supreme Court nominee this week.

That pushes the timeline for Obama to announce his choice to succeed Justice John Paul Stevens into May.

Obama said last week that he would make a nomination in the next couple of weeks.

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said at his regular briefing Monday that it won't be this week.
