There are no term limits for US Supreme Court justices. According to Article III, Section I, of the Constitution, Supreme Court justices hold their offices "during good behavior," meaning for life, as long as they don't commit an impeachable offense.
I'd like our democrat lawmakers and some republican lawmakers (who would get onboard to this idea) to pursue amending our constitution to limit a term a supreme court justice can serve, a lifetime on the bench is too lengthy. I would like to see justices serve no more than two 2 year terms.
Dock, this is a part of all the things which are done the wrong way in the Constitution, because when it was written, situations which we have now, did not exist . Like I told Schmidt and others; that this document is completely outdated and not at all an "living"
document as they do overseas. A "living
" document does not thrive on "case laws" or "clauses"; therefore any deserving "case law"
should be inserted in this document and written such way that it fits the base law and become part of the base law. "Amendments
" make an "base law" also confusing, if it conflicts over time with reality,
like the "second amendment".
Also the enormous workload to do research afterwards as well complications in wording to research everything back to 1776 makes all of this very convoluted. But one thing is sure, the zillion "lawyers" here have made fortunes trying to explain/interpret all this "wording" mess through the centuries..
