How old is too old for a Supreme Court justice?   Eighty-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has told a reporter that she is in excellent health and plans to remain on the court for several more years. Ginsburg told Joan Biskupic of Reuters that she wants to stay on the bench at least as long Justice Louis Brandeis, which would mean remaining until April 2016. She also said her new “model” was Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired at the age 90 in 2010. (Stevens is still active on the public-speaking circuit.)

October 23, 2005 | Jeffrey Rosen, Jeffrey Rosen is a law professor at George Washington University and legal affairs editor of the New Republic. He is the author of "The Naked Crowd: Reclaiming Security and Freedom in an Anxious Age" and the forthcoming book "The Most Democratic Branch: How the Courts Serve America."
EVER since Justice Sandra Day O'Connor announced her intention to retire from the U.S. Supreme Court, Democrats have hailed the former Republican legislator from Arizona as a paragon of pragmatism and moderation. Now that President Bush's controversial choice to replace O'Connor is prepping for a November confirmation fight, senators from both parties are wondering openly whether Harriet E. Miers would be a lawyerly pragmatist in the O'Connor mold or a conservative ideologue in disguise.
