Justice Ginsburg has spoken out on how long she’ll stay on the court. The Daily Caller reports:
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Sunday said she wants to keep her Supreme Court seat for “at least five more years.”
“I’m now 85,” Ginsburg said Sunday in New York at a production about late Justice Antonin Scalia called “The Originalist,” CNN reported. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.”
The liberal SCOTUS justice had kind words to say about her late colleague, despite their political differences.
“If I had my choice of dissenters when I was writing for the court, it would be Justice Scalia,” Ginsburg said, describing the back and forth between the two that helped her develop her arguments as a “ping-pong game.”
Many liberals are closely following any change in Ginsburg health as that would give another vacancy to fill on the high court by Trump.
