HeadlineJul 30, 2018

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she plans to continue serving on the bench for at least another five years. Speaking Sunday, she said, “I’m now 85. My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.” Justice Ginsburg has been a fierce critic of President Trump. She’s already hired law clerks to serve through 2020.
