Speaking to CNN, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsberg said felt she had “at least five more years” left on the nation’s highest court. The Coffin Clock, which is displayed on this magazine’s front page, now patiently sits at 11:53pm, just seven minutes from midnight.
Hell’s second most anticipated future resident, 85, had been in New York to see a play about the late Justice Antonin Scalia. “I’m now 85,” Ginsburg said to CNN. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.” She also reported that she’s hired law clerks for the next two terms.
The spritely Babe Ruth spoke highly of Justice Scalia, calling him her “choice of dissenters,” for the intellectual rigor he forced upon her. She admitted that arguments with Scalia led her to re-write her landmark decision opening up the Virginia Military Institute to female cadets 18 different times.
For the Babe, it’s coffin or Court. She told CNN there was no chance of retirement. She also said she was firmly against term limits, stating, “You can’t set term limits, because to do that you’d have to amend the Constitution.”
