Where does Justice John Paul Stevens sit on the US Supreme Court bench?

Justice Stevens is the Senior Associate Justice, with a tenure on the Court of more than 34 years. He occupies seat 2, which is immediately to the right of Chief Justice John Roberts, who always sits at the center of the bench (or at the head of the conference table). Other than the Chief Justice, US Supreme Court justices are always seated in order of seniority, with the senior associate sitting on the Chief Justice's right, and the next most senior associate (at this time, Justice Scalia), sitting to the Chief Justice's immediate left. The other justices alternate seats, right to left. The Junior Justice (at this time, Sonia Sotomayor) always occupies seat 9, which is farthest from the Chief Justice, on his left.
