U.S. Supreme Court

In speeches: Scalia says oral arguments are valuable; Ginsburg indicates she’s not ready to retire

I strongly support Justice Ginsburg in resisting calls that she retire.

@Yankee - as long as you're resisting because you agree with her ideological stance that justices shouldn't plan their retirements around who controls the White House, then I agree - justices should be above the political game. If it's simply because you're holding out hope that a Republican could nominate the justice to take her spot, then poor showing.

Should say "supporting" not "resisting."

@2 Gee, you are attributing Machiavellian motives to me without any evidence. My heart is as pure as the driven snow.

In point of fact, I just think it is wrong to push a person out of a job just because of his or her age. We must all join together to fight ageism.

Given her age and relative good health, my estimate is Justice Ginsburg can stay on the job for say . . . another 3 1/2 years or so.

Fastidiously, the tenure appraised by Ruth Ginsburg purporting another year on the court demonstrably assesses the ruling courting the justices reign as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

My apologies. The word "argument" got cut off the end of my post which stated: It's honest of Justice Scalia to admit that he enjoys receiving oral argument. I can fully understand how the lack of that word might be perceived as an improper post.
