    Ginsburg: Justices should stay if able to work

    RESTON, Va. (AP) -- Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says Supreme Court justices should work as long as they can and shouldn't manipulate their retirement so a like-minded president can appoint their successor.

    Some liberals have recently called on the 80-year-old Ginsburg to retire so that President Barack Obama can choose her replacement. If she stays beyond his term, it would leave open the possibility that a Republican would name the liberal justice's successor.

    But Ginsburg, the oldest justice on the court, cited Justices William Brennan and Thurgood Marshall on Tuesday as two liberal justices who left their replacement to Republican successor presidents. Ginsburg said she supposed many people wanted both men to leave when a Democrat was president, but she noted that neither did.

    Comments

    I don’t find in the Constitution, where it specifically states Supreme Court judges are nominated for life.  Why isn’t there a term limit or age limit ?


    Justices should be foreced to retire at age 70.


    I see that Justice isn’t really Blind.
